Springs and Things Tag...Bits and pieces


1..2...3...^...>...Stop...Play...do they look remote...ly familiar? 


I really enjoyed taking the remote control apart...the springs are fun..I love the little led light bulb..(see that tiny bubble top right...at the end of the cooper)...the keyboards are rubbery and the number cut off quite easily. I've taken watches apart and other broken electronics. I forget where I found that cooper spool thing...but wow...there are probably miles of micro thin cooper wire wrapped around that prize.



I tried inking up the rubber keyboard...see that pink mess...I looked at it from both sides...I knew I had to show my blogging buddies something I made with the parts...so I just let myself look at different components...gather some background paper...tags in this case...add some parts and pieces... put them down...move them around...until I was pleased...no rules...no reason...just for fun. The feather nearly attached itself and as for the google eye...it was there...caught in the spring.


My cousin ArteDar gifted me many art supplies and other goodies...these distressed metallic tags among them. That link will allow you to see the Rag Teddy she made using Tim Holtz's new fabric...he is so shabby sh...weet...he look's like he's been loved to tatters.

By the way Tim Holtz has requested "Arte Dar"... to make a rag teddy for him personally... and then he commissioned her to make one for the manufacturers display... for the new line of fabric... I believe it's Coats &Clark. I hope she thrives with the light shining on her. She is amazingly talented as you will notice just scrolling through her blog.

And now on to other things... I'll be pleased to answer any questions and respond to all comments.

Be well and thanks for visiting.~ Carole
