Found Objects Art ~ Ciera’s SpellsI created Ciera’s Spells because I wanted to use a particular piece of beautiful paper in one of my reliquaries. I hadn’t seen anything like it before. Soft and pliable, with a black background, bright pink design, and glitter! What could be cooler than that? I bought every variation of this paper that they had in the store and then gleefully discovered the metallic trim. I was in heaven. I had used this wonderful photo of the girl in a collage I had done and was excited to find another way to display her. This is not a picture of my sweet niece, Ciera, but the girl reminds me of her. Ciera loves to be on stage!
What do you give your niece when she wants to be a dancer? Spells to give her twinkle toes and happy feet, stardust and moonbeams to light her way.
This found objects art work features the picture of the young dancing girl, which is from a vintage postcard. The columns next to her are wrapped with aluminum textured paper and silver and white trim. A sheer pink curtain and glass and metal vintage beaded flowers open for her performance. Metallic silver fringe hangs over her head as she performs before a backdrop of silver and black marbled paper.
The relics are three antique bottles which hold Ciera’s precious spells, each with it’s own label: twinkle toes, stardust and moonbeams, and happy feet. The vials are stitched onto a pink bed of satin bordered by silver paper lace and pink frosted glass buttons and silver crystals.
The front of the reliquary is covered with black and mauve paper highlighted with silver glitter and wrapped with a magenta trim. A silver pin was spruced up and recommissioned to add the final decorative touch to this found objects art.
