I have a terminal fascination with assemblage projects. I love the look of them but can't ever seem to get my lazy butt in gear to complete them. I, sometimes, have grand ideas that are beyond my scope but mostly, I just can't seem to figure out how to attach something. Having become more familiar with a variety of adhesives and alternatives to glue (like staples), I find myself drawn back into the Siren's song of assemblage or, as I sometimes call it, 3-D Collage.
The main stumbling block wasn't just my adhesion problems. I think I also needed to amass a certain quantity of 3-D items as well as substrates to assemble upon! I've finally learned enough about my supplies to feel comfortable attempting some 3-D projects.
So here's my first small project and most of the materials came from Alpha Stamps. (This is a great place to find miniature items of just about
everything you'd need for these kind of projects. Whether its Halloween
related or not.) Most of these items came in kit designed to construct a tin of potions. See the sold-out kit HERE. The kit page still has the links to all the individual pieces used here.
For me, this was a great way to get my feet wet into this type of collage without feeling overwhelmed by a big project. I didn't have to think too much about what I wanted to make. Instead I could focus on making it!
Thanks for taking a look! Still more fun Halloween things to share this month!
