Outside Your Box Saturday Rusty Things



Here is my rusty things piece... I used steel wool and vinegar to make a wonderfully fine, tightly woven cotton fabric very colorful with lovely swirls of rust! I then attached a map fragment and a piece of shrinkfilm stamped with a map along the top and side. In the lower corner, I glued a pic of Madonna & child ontop of a card atop a domino. As a final touch, I added a tiny stamped celtic bee onto the map. What fun!

This piece is amazing Kim. I really love your rusted fabric, what an interesting look! The little strip off to the left almost looks like distressed copper mesh? Such a lovely creation you've made here!!!
