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!
