I decided to try an assemblage collage on stretched canvas- it's a 3-D piece made of all vintage materials- I call it "A Dog's Life"! I love dogs and collect vintage dog art and items! This piece is meant to be graphic and whimsical- her sparkly little crown was cut from an old cardboard glittered Christmas light reflector! I used old ephemera- sheet music, bingo and playing cards, a vintage weight scale fortune, dictionary entry- with many old goodies- letters, buckles, a strap, an erector piece, game pieces, metal gear and tag, etc. It was a fun project! I'm looking forward to trying some other pieces...I'm so inspired by many of you!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
I am Linda Dresselhaus... married, the mother of three grown children, have five sweet and lively grandchildren, and two spoiled pugs. I partner with my daughter, Liana, in an antiques and art business- we love junking and creating! I sell on etsy and at a few other sales during the year, the biggest being Junk Bonanza! We also have full time space at Pond Road Antiques in Mankato, Minnesota! I love spending time with my family, hanging out at the lake, photography, writing, baking, decorating, reading, creating artwork and re-use projects, and gardening.
I'm so glad you stopped by!
