Art Assemblage Story Tin – Once Upon A Time

I listed this little Art Assemblage story tin last night but,  as we’re still having problems with our internet, I’d had enough of waiting for things to happen  and decided to call it a day and post it the blog today. Tom has been in touch with our ISP again, they now seem to agree the problem is not down to our equipment and will be sending an engineer out to investigate. But, the engineer will not be coming until next Monday, by which time our connection will probably be working again and he won’t be able to tell what is wrong.

Art Assemblage
The title has been embroidered on to a small cloth panel.

In the time its taken for me to post this, the piece has been bought, pushing my Etsy sales through the two hundred mark :D.  Thanks to everybody who has supported me through sales and by helping to get my work out to a wider audience.

Though its gone I hope you’ll still enjoy these extra pics.

“Once Upon A Time.” – Art Assemblage story tin.

An assemblage of another time captured in a small vintage tin, which is 17 cm long, 15cm wide when the tin is opened, 7.5 cm when closed.

A tin that whispers a story when the cover draws back. The inside lid of the tin is hand painted using acrylics and acrylic sculpting paste. At the top of the lid is a pale cream cameo, hanging below are a pair of tiny hand sculpted dancing pumps made from papier mache. Inside the tin are three ball dresses. Each dress can be taken in and out of the tin.

If you would like to purchase any of my work, please visit my My Etsy Shop. My Etsy shop also has several other art dress assemblages for sale, I hope you enjoy viewing them.
