MMM: Art

"But Alone I am"
Altered Tin

This week, Mixed Media Monday offers an open art prompt. In other words, anything goes! With that in mind, I thought I would create another piece in what I suspect will be a series using altered tin and vintage children's images. The first piece, "I Exist" can be found here and was the inspiration for what  you see above.

As before, it was created on a piece of vintage tin molding and a cabinet card. I used two small pieces of wood as a shimmy between the photo and the tin so that it would sit straight and be sturdy. The vintage text included reads, "But alone I am."

Thank you for your time: I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with in this week's open prompt . . .

I have some barrel lathes that would really work with this technique. I cannot imagine working with tin though....but I do have a little tin box over <--- where there is a room chuck full of supplies of every kind. This is gorgeous. You have my mind stewing and brewing now!
