Configuration Transformer...hehe!

A side view of the completed (finally) Configuration.  Bill said it looked like a Transformer!  I think he's absolutely right!
This is made starting with the 5.5 x 5.5 Configuration, but leftover boxes from other Configs were added.
 
The left side has the bulb colored with Alcohol Inks. The little mesh purse is a find from my friend Ann's husband. 


This side section has a Corked Vial with Alcohol Inks and a label. The bulbs were added by cutting a hole in the top of the boxes.



The Fractured Doll is dressed in Tissue Tape and a metallic ribbon. The round vintage piece above her is from Vintaj.



You probably recognize the Graphic 45 Rose under the little swimmer guy. I've saved these pieces and waited for the opportunity to collect them all together in a fun spot. 

The key on the side is an antique from my collection.


Just a closeup look at the bottles and the embossed copper top. The canvas corner is used for the roof. Alcohol Inks were added and an old corner from years ago seemed to call to me for the peak.

This is rough. It's been painted, sanded, sprayed, and stamped. It is definitely "vintage" looking in person.

That was part of the fun in making it. It didn't have to be "perfect" in every aspect. Pealed paint and sanded edges added to the look.


The bottom sections act as legs. The are filled with round objects. The one furthest on the left is a tin lid filled with Glossy Accents and watch parts.

Old stash paper clips connect the 2 sections together.

Hangers add a little something to the corners.


Put them all together, and this is what you get.


Hope you all remain safe through this ugly spring weather we're experiencing in the Midwest. It's been a rough ride.

Hug your loved ones and for Pete's Sakes....Be GOOD to each other!!! Life's too short!

Your Friend in ART,

Linda

Linda -

What a wonderful Masterpiece! This reminds me of those old antique shops filled to the brim with treasures and little secrets around every corner. That is how I feel about this piece. Each time you look at it, you see another intriguing piece you missed before! Absolutely the best Transformer I've ever seen!

Linda, my son (the one who said the chunky ATC looked like a "lady with the diamond head" came into the store while you had stepped into the office and I showed him this and he thought it was very cool. I was fascinated looking at all those details!
We're going to have to start collecting for one of these!! ;) Thanks for sharing all your great projects.
