ART? CURIO BOX - my style





This frame made Top 3 on Craft your days away Wings challenge- thanks!!
This frame won a Hut challenge on Raise a bar- thanks!!
This frame won the Home sweet home Scrap that poetry challenge- thanks!!

OK- this is my style curio box.. I know- the name and the concept is from dear Tim- but this time I only used a concept and 3 metal pieces from his line and some stickles- no more.. And my motto this time was " use as much as you can form your TTT box"
TTT is for Trash to treasure box I have with all this bits an pieces left, recycled, unused- actually I have several of these boxes as I keep everything..Whi knows what you need and when..
I don't.
So this one is close no cost display- the wood shape was 1$ shop here in Israel, I think it's more 1.4$ in our money, but we call it a1 $ shop as once USD was much more and they just left the price like it was 3-4 years ago..
So I did acrylic painting with candle technique( dark acrylic- candle- light acrylic- sanding)
Added some paper pieces, printed some quotes on transparency, stamped a butterfly on another one, made some homemade glass pebbles, cut a frame, made some ribbon pleating and collaged these 3d pieces all around. The domino, playing cards, bottles, jewelry pieces- all of them in this collage and the question is as the title: is it art? Not sure.. Craft?Not sure as it is useless and craft is something we can use.
Is it cool? Yes, I think it is.. And this is another piece for my bare crat room walls.

ואו, עירית, יש דברים שאני לא יכולה שלא להגיב עליהם - זה אחד מהם.
פשוט. מהמם. במלוא מובן המילה. איזו עבודה מרשימה ומקסימה, העיבוד הכי יפה שראיתי עד לרגע זה של הבית עץ הזה! מאד מזכיר את מגירות הדפוס שהן להיט עכשיו.
מהמם.

Sandy Ang said...

Love the idea of pink for a Curio Box! It contrasts so nicely with the metal and more subdue ephemera colours.
