Altered Art

A lapel pin made with 2 altered puzzle pieces and other embellishments.

I altered puzzle pieces to embellish these necklace pendants.

Necklace pendants that I made by altering puzzle pieces.
This is a lapel pin that started life as a dangle earring from the dollar store.  Its embellishment, likewise, had an earlier life ... as a puzzle piece.

This altered pear was created using an artificial plastic pear from the dollar store.

This piece contains a clay mask I made using a dollar-store candle-holder as my mold; the frame is from the dollar store, too.

I altered this wooden box using my own original clipart, assorted embellishments and a "dressform" that came from a dollar-store purchase of doll clothes for my granddaughter.  It was sold at the 2010 juried Monmouth Festival of the Arts.
Here, I altered dollar-store pears and mounted them in a shadowbox frame.
