I'm a bit of a hoarder, some of my friends are very exasperated by this, others love me for it!
So clue one I have a lot of odd stuff laying carefully put away in boxes, plastic storage drawers and old sweet jars.
Clue two I went to the auction and there, unwanted, was this large tray, bit like a printers tray but its not.
Clue three I've been following another assemblage artist Rebeca Trevino for a while. I love her work and we are blogger friends. This is a big homage to her style of work!
My head puts one, two and three together and out comes my latest work.
"Every Home Should Have One"
Its 24 x 15 inches, has over 140 items, vintage papers for the backing and has not even made a dent in the hoard. I hope you enjoy looking for all the little things. Perhaps you have some of them in your kitchen drawer?
The items date from the 1890's to the present day, all have been collected by me or given by friends. All have memories and attachments in my life.
Here's what it looked like with out the items.
I hope you can see that I have had to use blanks for the Y & H, time to get out and find some more Scrabble games. No More Nails has been used to stick all the big items.
This was such fun to make. Hopefully something will inspire me to get going on another one soon.
