Memory Book from Puerto Villarta
I've placed six photos in my album of a "book" of memories. It was inspired by a piece of wall art at the Hacienda Mosaico, where ROSIE, KLINGER, CALAMITY and I spent a magical week together in Riana's workshop. When I first saw it, it reminded me of Teesha Moore's images on her rubber stamps. These pieces were all junk scraps I found in the garage - an old board w/wonderful crackled paint, ROSIE's wonderful photos, lettering and images from newspapers used to pack our gifts, airline ticket stub, parts of invoices where we shopped, a portion of the hacienda business card and ..... . On ROSIE's picture, I placed a crown - "Queen of Photography". On the front is the title stamped into polymer clay - "Adventures of the Fabulous, Fearless Foursome". The head holds my idea of my ubiquitous problematic hair, made of wires into a wooden craft leg from HobLob and a piece of junk jewelry for the face. Of course, I had to have the heart motif somewhere, so glued three ceramic hearts on the book cover and one teensy one on the neck. I had so much enjoyment in creating this piece, I can't believe it isn't a mosaic. The glue is still drying so I couldn't hang it for photographing. Don't know where to hang it yet anyway.
