Its a happy thing when you move your hands and make things! This class is a great excuse to go on the hunt or finally use all the pieces and parts that you have collected. And its fun to combine things and photos in a fresh new way :)
Here are a few tips for the type of box you might find to turn into an assemblage..one way is to purchase a “cradled wood panel” like the one above, or dig through antique shops, attics, yard sales, thrift stores and look for a great wooden box that has lived a full life and has “juice” and character, like the one below. One thing to keep in mind is finding a box that is one or two inches deep, and its also important to look for the sides edges of the box to be at least one half inch to one inch wide.. the reason for this is that you will need a little room to nail your plexiglass to the box….see the tiny nails….its an easy and great way to give your assemblage a fabulous finish :) add some wire on the back and it will be ready for hanging on the wall :)
Do you have a great stash of wonderful “found” things? I bet you do :)
