I like to call these my art supplies--
Unlike purchasing from an art store--I purchase these from garage sales and flea markets--most of these items would most likely have been trashed unless someone else found them, and all of them have a history to them--a story to tell.
But now they've come together to make a new story--
...in this vintage silverware box...
and I've made a new doll--
....and her new home is in this old cheese box--
I couldn't stop with my art supplies--I altered some more playing cards (see my last post), and this time I put them on some wood houses and even a little tree--
And one more--
Whatever I found that was close at hand went into this Dream box--pretty much how I dream. I think whatever is floating around in my head my mind grabs and puts them in my dreams, and sometimes I really wonder what's going on in my head because I can have some pretty strange dreams!
So this weekend is my first show of the year--the Youngstown Summer Festival of the Arts--it seems like I've been getting ready for years for my art shows to start up and now they're finally here--can't wait to get out there and get started!
