Pack Up Your Cares and Woes…

Metal Medley Challenge #5

Cares and Woes (C&W for short) is 12″ tall and is for the person who jots things down on scraps of paper. For those of us that don’t journal this is a place to drop notes, thoughts and concerns. There’s a slot in the back of the body for the scraps of paper. The lid hinges open so the scraps can be retrieved and the cares and woes set free.

Medley Supplies: ATC Tin, Metal Frame, Eyelets
Supplies from my Stash: Doll parts/Hands and Flat Feet, Vintage Projector Lens Holder (no lens), Tea Strainer, Tree Bark, Peat Moss, Flax Seeds, Twigs, Seed Pod, Beads, 30g and 18g Wire, Birds, Vintage Flowers, Ice Resin, Copic Markers, Rubber Stamp,Colored Pencils, Lead Sinkers, Nuts and Bolts, Tool – lots of tools.

Verse: Change your thoughts and you change the world.

The top of her arms were cut away. Twigs and moss were put in place to give the appearance that her arms were a part of her body/tree.

Often, when I see someones work I wonder how they got “that stuck to that”?

There were some design and technical challenges with C&W that I’ll cover in the next post. I took some pictures of the process and what parts looked like before they were covered up. Of course if you have any questions shoot me an email.
