I wanted to work with paper and die cuts this weekend.  Here's the result. 

Some angl-y shots to show all that sweet, sweet dimension.

These are really cool!

Since I am a member of the SCA, a medieval recreation group, I decided to do this the only way I knew how - the hard way.

I've had a block for a while and this is the first thing I've made in months.  Whew.

It's a wooden cigar box, painted haphazardly with green acrylic and then the inside was covered with various ephemera, commercially produced papers, etc. 

I also made a bee hive texture with gel medium and spray inks, then covered areas of the collage with gold metallic and clear encaustic wax.  Some metal embellishments, moss, sticks from my hydrangea, tiny beads, and hopefully the result is an interesting piece with natural elements.

I left the paint pretty rough with some areas of the box coming through.

Upside down.  Oops.

Nestled in with some of my other stuff.

Thanks all!  I really enjoyed these projects and the class as a whole.  The instructor will be doing a kinetic sculpture class next fall and you better believe I'm going to be in it.

I recently took a Found Sculpture class and *loved* it.  These are two of the projects we completed.  The first was a wearable found sculpture.  I started with a sardine tin and used broken jewelry pieces, an iron spike, wire, bottle caps, and part of a steamer basket to create a protection shrine that can be worn as a necklace or on a belt.  It's inspired by a sci-fi book (A Canticle for Leibowitz) which is about a futuristic religious order that makes relics out of everyday items from contemporary culture.

The steamer basket "shield" lifts up to reveal a golden cross and the Latin word for "safe" or "protected."

The second project is a face.  We made faces to construct a family "photo" at the end of the class.  I made the family pet.  The steamer basket segments appear again, this time riveted to some kind of metal flower holder?  A wooden checker, watch face, finger cymbal, and more jewelry finish up the features of the face.
