Another garage sale find from last year--
I guess you would call this a shadowbox that just happens to be in the shape of a house--which is perfect for anything art-related, especially for me. Houses are one of my favorite themes to work with. The minute I saw it, I knew what I could do with it.
First, I just covered it with book pages and then stamped it with this great numbers stamp that I have--
After that it was easy---I have so much stuff here, it was a little overwhelming on which pieces I could use. I decided on going with a little bit steampunk again--
And I added a great vintage photo. I decided not to make a copy like I usually do and to use the actual photo. I have so many old photos now, so why not use the original. I don't know what I'm saving them for.
She was the perfect finishing touch for my altered shadowbox house!
And I'm looking forward to tomorrow. The weather is looking good for garage sales ( my first ones I'll be going to this year)! I love going to garage sales and finding more art supplies. I wonder what people think when I buy some of their "worthless" junk---I wish I could go back when I'm finished to show them what I do with their trash. : )
