Time Flies

Time Flies… literally. I couldn’t resist adding the little buggers to this assemblage. What a fun project this turned out to be. I used a plethora of old and new supplies and bright shiny copper and vibrant blueish turquoise. Everything from wire, watch parts, hardware, brads, punched metal, copper tape, threads, ribbons, fabrics… you name it… It it was blue or copper it went here… if it wasn’t… I inked it!

Here’s a few close ups for some yummy detail…


Here you can see the metal leaves, the wire and the rubber-stamped flies… I used Ranger Alcohol Ink for the hardware and the leaves… in Cloudy Blue.



I stamped the text and used embossing powder and topped it with paper glaze to texture it more… I added the black outline to define it more. The fly was a plastic toy ring that I took apart. I painted the fly with iridescent colors to add sparkle.

I used embroidery thread, copper taper, ribbon, and colored wire for “dressing” this doll. She lays atop a page of text from a game journal.

Now I’m off to start the final painting/collage/assemblage in this art doll series… Or should I add an eighth to this line? Hmmm.
