altered art work

I really enjoy making small works of art using vintage photos. I so often find wonderful images of children at my favorite haunts (where I always end up to buy 'old stuff').

In this little piece- the oval back- it's an altered Chili's drink coaster! I first coated it with gesso and then covered with paper and stamped it. The dangles are vintage findings from a great little store in Nyack, NY- an antique store haven. This piece sold on eBay.

I enjoy the background on this. And I knew I wasn't the only one bringing home those coasters!
