Bits and Bobs


I had a few bits and bobs lying around. Well actually I covered the two frames with metal foil, alcohol inked them and then wondered what I was going to do with them!!! The piece at the back is grungeboard cut in the shape of a film strip but then turned on its side. I coloured that with frayed burlap distress ink, sanded it down and went over it again with timber brown stazon. I attached a piece of wire mesh to the back using raffia to hold it to the grungeboard, added a button in the middle and a piece of chain, oh and also added the images and then stamped the words into the frames.

I like how you've combined all these elements, the wire, raffia and grungeboard. It should be very heavy looking but isn't somehow and the images and words are exactly what's needed here.
