Metal Madness

I have a thing for metal. I love the idea of collecting things I see on the ground, in flea markets, in the garage, and in the tool box. Bits and bobs that have been forgotten, but are waiting to be transformed. I have many of these little treasures. Someday soon, they will be magical again.

I'm particularly attracted to numbers and letters. I have a whole box full of lead printers type, just waiting for my ideas. I've been buying up brass stencils in all different sizes lately. I have no idea what I'll do with them, but I had to have them.

They look just amazing in mixed media pieces. I'd like to say I've made something with them, but I haven't. But I can show you something-

This was made by the talented Deryn Mentock. Go check her out. And then go buy some for yourself.

Hugs- Lee
