Nothing here yet but by the days end I must have new art!

A day late but better late then never. I call this piece Keeper Of Forgotten Keys! She was very photogenic so I tooks several and wanted you all to see how cool she will look just about anywhere. I bought this old door piece at an outside antique sale for like a buck, it had cob webs in it and some spiders eggs...gross huh. All for arts sake I scrubbed it out and got rid of all those critters. Then I loved the old crackle look so much I decided to keep that.. I simply washed iot let it dry and sealed it well with a gel medium/my fav!

Then I made my ArtChix fairy doll. With an ArtChix head(isn't she beautiful) she is from one of the doll pieces sheets as are her legs!
Those are some ArtChix keys mixe with som Holees keys to give it a varied look. I made the key chain out of wire and bent it all myself until I liked the way it looked!
The dress is made from one of those paper stacks that are on sale all over the place in art stores these days. The black and white letter edition. I drew her hands as they had to be holding the key ring.
The wings are from an ArtChix Wings transparency sheet and under them to make them stand out I used a heart shaped doiley cut in haly, some gold German scrap to tip them off(also Artchix)
There was a missing shell cover over the hole so I found the perfect collage match from a Tuscan Rose sheet I had bought some time agao. I added that and some brads, smacked those brad up real good with a Tim Holtz textured hammer. Love that look. Then I added a few more bits from tuscan Rose and did the same with more brads and the special hammer.

I hope ya all like this one I do. I need to find the perfect poem now for the back of this piece. I think hung in the proper place this would make an excellent Key holder/rest!
