The cutest teeny little scarf and beret

44  Rosemary...for Remembrance Altered assemblage in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by balkandina on: September 19, 2007 09:43:28 AM
I am very excited and nervous because I get to be in a group show in Nov. Most of the other artists are urban ,edgy types and my art isn't quite like that. This is an assemblage I'm showing. It's made of an old lantern,rusted screen,hemp,photograph,wood, paper ephemera, seashells and ink.I'm not sure if it shows well in these photos.

Palicious sent me a lovely tin. It is VERY well-made for a firsty!

 The decoupaged Victorian England front and bottom

A quotation from Emily Dickinson, one of my fave poets.

And it came wrapped in this beautiful wrist bag. I can't show the beautiful found locket she included, because my 17 year old DD immediately took it and is wearing it all the time Roll Eyes Smiley She also sweetly included some altoids, since I'm one of the few voracious altoid munchers in this swap gang Cheesy
Thank you, Palicious-it's a wonderful tin and you are a great and communicative partner.

46  Rust never sleeps-a recycled mobile-wind chime in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by balkandina on: September 14, 2007 02:28:57 PM

This is a windchime I made from rusted tin cans,hemp and various bits of metal that I turned into the clappers, including old spoons.

It actually has quite a nice sound. I originally made a bell for the Trash to Treasure swap out of an old rusted pail and a rusty spoon, but I didn't have any more rusty pails, so decided to rust some tins I had Smiley

Here's my last card from have2craft. She had trouble with the USPS...but I got this cool one so it all worked out okay! If any of you ever see the things I post about my yard art you'll know how much I like the card!!

Thanks to all my swap partners and to Twiztidblood-you're a super cool organizer!!

48  Re: Balkandina's ATC Gallery-WARNING-New clown card 8/28 in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by balkandina on: August 28, 2007 09:17:56 AM
I've been too busy trading to post, but here's one with...A CLOWN. I had sent Wyokrista a card that used part of this cool retro sticker,too.

It's not quite as streaky in real life. It's called "The neck is under the head"

49  Faux water feature and more funkrustico yard art IMG HVY in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by balkandina on: August 28, 2007 09:09:35 AM
I lust for all of the water features,ponds,etc,,, everyone has, but really couldn't afford it this year. I've just started a new garden room in my narrow side yard-so here's some more funkrustico stuff I've cobbled together. Oh, yeah, there are some plants, too Tongue

This is an old brass bowl with dragonflies on it that I got for $1 at a thrift store. It's on top of a log from tree that was cut down near my house and I scavenged.(I soaked it in bleach to clean out any bad stuff

birdseye view

I put a flat rock on top of another log to arrange sacred objects

A mobile-I kind of see an angel in it Smiley

An old salvaged Christmas tree with some worn ceramic pieces
