After seeing all the cool assemblage pieces that @geekgirl makes, and then seeing @aimr make her own piece, I had started thinking that maybe I would actually try to make my own. When I received my free Vintaj package in the mail, it had all sorts of cool metal doodads that I knew would be perfect for assemblage. I used a bunch of those, as well as a few other things I found around the house.
I didn’t think to paint the canvas first, but saw later that geekgirl paints hers first. No biggy. I painted two layers of black, and well as a splattering of a metallic black I had, and set it over night. This morning, I put a smattering of turquoise. I think it turned out well!

That was fun…and sticky! I don’t know that I would make a ton of these, but it was fun to try something new!
