Curious Collection in the Works

Mostly known for my Collage Art Work, I also love to make assemblage boxes.

Here is a window into my process.

I have begun the process for two new Nature themed Boxes. I have covered the boxes with antique papers and have collected oddities from nature and found objects from the past.

Now comes the fun part…selecting and arranging. What will make the cut and what goes back in the collection for a future project?
