I get bored easily, and that's why I like to switch up things all the time. And, in the meantime, I've been attempting to 'de-clutter' my art spaces (which are in every nook and cranny of this house), which made me want to start making some 3D collages. And this is the only real time of the year where I can really get detailed with them. So as I'm TRYING to clean, I'm also gathering little goodies for my art pieces to come together--a lot of things I even forgot that I had.
Here was my first little pile that was helping me put my story together--
This is how I make these assemblages--I find things that kind of speak to me for what I want to do--some I end up using and some I don't, and some I haven't found yet, but I will as the piece comes together.....
I bought a bunch of these post office doors on Ebay from the same seller--and I got a pretty good deal--they're not that easy for me to find--I was really happy and surprised when I won the bid.
And this post office door turned into a little house--
...with all the fun little details--
My second pile of finds still kept me going with the home theme--
Now most of these items were bought from a store or online somewhere--but still good finds. And these finds led me to my bird's home--
In this case, the scrapbook paper in the background--'told' me what to do--
These pieces can become very time-consuming--not so much the assembling part--but the search for the pieces can go on for hours--yeah--I have that much stuff that I've accumulated--I kind of get lost in the hunt---I enjoy it as much as I enjoy bringing the piece together!
