An assemblage box for the upcoming Open Studios in October. It is lots of fun using these wooden boxes from Bed, Bath & Beyond. They are in the kitchen section and are made to go in drawers and keep silverware and utensils organized.
In this one, I started with 7 Gypsies paper for the background, then added 2 pieces of rusty hardware, a vintage key, a tattered GAR ribbon from the 1920's and the top half of a derelict clarinet.
I enjoy the pairings in this piece; French paper with an American ribbon, hardware with a musical instrument. Unlikely yes, but somehow they achieve a quite satisfying whole.
