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..
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.
