Altered Arts Magazine Fall 2012
It was so exciting, I made the cover!!
This is the map and treasure chest I made. I printed out 2 maps and inked them both up. Then I cut out pieces of one map to put on top of the other map using foam dots. The map had great color and dimension. Last, I curled the edges and burned the map in some spots to really give it an aged look. I put the map in a wood box when I was done. I painted the box like the chest.
I used several paints and inks to try to make the chest look old. It is exciting to find pirate's treasure!
For this piece, I took a tea cup I found at the thrift store for .25. I put it in a towel and smashed it with a hammer. I then glued the broken pieces around an oval that looked like tea. I used gesso as the grout. Book print paper was cut like leaves and placed them all around the cup. What a fun mosaic!
