After the horrible shootings this week I was inclined to make this altered art ATC. I used background images from a public domain site. The pictures are actually paintball photos but they look very ominous so they work for the effect I wanted. When everything around us is falling apart, this is the only thing that is constant. She is on eBay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=011&sspagename=STRK%3AMESE%3AIT&viewitem=&item=320105074783&rd=1&rd=1
I found a beautiful box for 50 cents at a sale and made this piece of altered art using a picture of my model to make this prayer box. I tried for the crackle finish but didn't quite get there. Maybe next time. It measures about 4" x 5". This is on etsy (http://sallylsmith.etsy.com.)
This altered art piece uses transparencies (package tape over professional copies and newsprint), junk watch face, old button, old library index card, lace, leaf, stamp, and copied photo. I used an old brass protractor for the hanger. It measures about 4 1/2" across and is about 5 1/2" high with the protractor another 2 " above that. This is on ETSY (http://sallylsmith.etsy.com).
