Rebel Assemblage Collage

This assemblage/collage,  I did a while back, using all 'found' pieces and vintage pieces. It's a reclaimed 8 x 10 frame, painted copper, that I made a box insert for the back to give have a deep space to work in. As you can see from the subject matter, I was feeling rebellious that day:) I love the dodo bird:)

As you can see, I found a different way of hanging the finished piece, using reclaimed vintage brass knobs, and chain, but what I enjoyed most was playing with 'Tim Holtz' Tissue Tape, which is what I used to wrap the outside and inside of the frame.
The fuses are filled with pearls and tiny sea shells. Sorry for the quality of the pictures, I'm still trying to master taking pictures of framed projects, as no matter what background you use, they reflect like a mirror. But you get the idea at least.
Enjoy!

I seem to be collecting old 1920's thru 1950's brass drawer knobs....they work great for creating feet on all sorts of things, but this looked like it would work too, and works great! I'll be using this technique the next time I need to hang something special:)
Cheers!
