Work in progress...

I've mentioned before that searching for tiny bits of ephemera to use in my art reminded me of the game where you have to find as many things as possible that fit into a matchbox. 

Well, taking that idea to it's logical conclusion, here are some little matchboxes I've been working on!

These are going to be part of a larger piece, which I'm planning on submitting to a local open exhibition at the end of the month. Assuming it's finished in time. Nothing like a deadline to get you motivated!

    Sharon that made me laugh - and thank you for the compliment!

    Claire I agree - I'm drawn to little boxes and hiding places of all kinds :)

  5. This looks yummy! I love everything about it. We are kindred spirits indeed. Trinkets and treasures, bits and pieces, script, keys, laces, buttons, tiny jars...sigh...

  6. I love where this is going, Angie!
