7 x 5 Altered Tin
I decided to try my hand at a white palette when prompted to Cool It Down this week for Mixed Media Monday. I was thrilled to find a few pieces of old and rusted decorative tin recently (once used for ceiling tiles and molding), and thought it may be interesting to pair it with a vintage cabinet card.
This piece was very simply created by first cutting a piece of molding to the desired size and shape with tin snips before adhering a small piece of wood (which was first painted white and distressed with charcoal) to the front for a secure base. The vintage picture is so beautiful on it's own, that after playing with various pieces of empheria and college materials to add to the piece, I finally just pushed them all aside so that it may stand alone. The only other addition is a simple statement taken from a vintage book. It reads, "I exist."
Thank you for your visit: I look forward to seeing what everyone else does this week . . .
