my ancient digital camera can't quite capture all the details...let me know if you want anything described.  there's a little paint (just the bluish stuff), some electrical tape, and a drawing i did that was collecting dust in there, but most of it is stuff i picked up off the ground or rescued from the clutches of the trash/recycling (lots of junk mail).  it's supposed to be about my boyfriend's near-death experience (which i've already gone on about in the 'show off your sweeties' thread).  i haven't quite decided if it 'works' or not.  

i'd feel weird competing for rubber stamps with something like this, so i'm hereby disqualifying myself by admitting that it's only 11 inches high.  but i really would appreciate some feedback...hope that's okay.

There's something I really like about that. I can't quite place it, but I'm drawn to it somehow... it's really interesting. I think the placement of the different items helps a lot and the fact that there are different textures adds something. Don't be so hard on yourself... I really like the meaning behind it. I totally got a sense of a crime scene (close but not quite, eh?) when I first glanced at it. The "fragile: handle with care" thing really does a lot for this piece.

I think it works well. And the fact that it means something to you makes it that much more important and meaningful.

I like it.

thanks a bunch, guys.  i was starting to worry it was too serious/not crafty enough to get any responses.

I like it as well.  It always adds something when you put something personal in what you do.

This reminds me of collages that artists used to do back in the day, in Picasso's day. They would use found objects, papers, cigarette boxes, string, to create something that still resembled abstract art.

wow, thanks.  i showed it to someone and they said it reminded them of robert rauschenberg's art...i have taken several art history classes recently, so maybe i was unknowingly inspired by the original collage makers.

it does mean a lot to me, and i'm glad i made it (especially because i hadn't really tried collage before).  it's a little hard, though, because i chose and arranged everything in there very carefully so that all the little elements would represent something, but i'm afraid it just kind looks like a bunch of stuff to anyone who isn't me.  oh well...guess that's why it's going on my wall.  Smiley

Wow, I really like it.  Before I read your description of it I thought it was actually a type of emotional representation of 9/11.  I think it's a great piece and you should be proud of it.

I absolutely love this. And the fact that it means something and it wasn't just to enter a contest makes it all that much better. like someone else said there's something about it that draws me to it.  just can't place what it is. But it's definately wonderful.

thank you so much to everyone who's commented.  being able to share this with people has been so much nicer than sitting alone in my room staring at my creation.

Horray for being honest! Not only with us but with yourself. I feel you captured the emotions/thought process nicely, excellent work. (I would've voted for this piece)
