Bag of Inspiration


Well I worked on my Bag of Inspiration (Not bag of Junk) (see previous post) and produced this for Ness. A soda can icon which I have titled the Time Machine.
Oh but this is not it! This is the piece I purchase from Michael de Meng!











I used a wonderful cog and I don't know what else to call it, metal piece with glass, and an old chain , a key and a little washer type thing from Ness's collection and the rest from my stash.
I do hope she likes it!
I used one of Tims oversized bottle tops at the top to house the old watch piece. I like the way the bottle top has the opposite look to the large cog.
The key is hanging off an olf watch strap that was part of the container of old watch parts that Jen and I bought at the swap meet.
And before I forget, I have finished cutting out all the bits for the arty_oz collab book - YAHHHHH
