Altered Jewelry Box and Collage Sea Canvas

As usual, I am obsessed with the altered art "bug" this week, and decided to share a couple of ideas and projects with you that I have done recently. I made a collage canvas picture on canvas board, using an old calendar, that my husband really likes. Here is a picture of it above.

I also made an altered jewelry box a few months ago, using shells, glue, beads and jewelry findings and some glitter paints. I also re-painted the metal hardware with gold paint. I didn't like it at first, but it started to grow on me after awhile.

I still can't quite find or create the look I am searching for. I guess it is just going to take time and experimentation with different techniques. I think I may be making it harder than it has to be!

Well, until next time, email me with any suggestions or techniques you wish to share, and I will mention you, along with your ideas on this blog! We can share techniques among us, and educate each other-art is for every heart!
