Finnabair CT..................She Wears Her Heart On Her Sleeve

Hello. A trick to creating great compositions, so they say, is to use "like or similar elements" through out, this creates a harmonious and balanced piece.
In my assemblage piece I have used elements that are at odds with each other.......
red and green, (well burgundy and teal).
rust and velvet and
metal and porcelain.
In art, we need to break the rules......... just to see what can happen.
It was fun to play with an eclectic mix of opposites.

The other things that were fun to play with were Finnabair's new Rusted Mechanicals, such as the beautiful Rusted Pocket Watch and the "Create Magic" Rustic Washer. Also the amazing Rust Effect Paste.........turn any embellishment, no matter what it's made of, instantly rusty !

This particular project, more than any other, says a lot about me.

Details of how this assemblage was made are HERE on the Finnabair blog as well as a full list of products used.
Thanks for visiting today. Have a creative week. Break some rules.
