For Day 4 of AEDM, I'm finally finishing a project I've had hanging over my head for nearly a month.
Some of you may remember I made this assemblage back in October. You may have wondered why I didn't finish it. The sad truth is, I loaned my crop-a-dile to a friend and finally got it back yesterday. I'm now ready to finish it.
I'm not sure you can tell where I drew pencil marks to show where the holes in the book cover should be, so I placed the pencil directly below the left hole. That was one of the hardest things I have done, and have reminded myself to not make any more of these assemblages without first punching holes in the book cover and backing.
The wire is finally attached, but I couldn't find the bead I originally made for it,
so had to make a new one. I used some really heavy copper wire that I had recycled.
That's why I'm not sure what gauge it is, but I'm guessing either 12 or 14 ga. Yes, it's heavy. I'm just THRILLED that I can finally add this to my list of completed projects, even though it took nearly as long to wrangle that wire through all those layers, especially the area behind the flowers, as it would had I actually created something new.
Today is Day 4 of AEDM and I finished this project by adding a wire and bead to my first ever book cover assemblage.
