It was a Dark and Stormy Night…

It was a dark and stormy night. Or, so they said. This scene has several cut paper layers, depicting an inner castle wall inside the City of Lost Things.

Watch This…

A raccoon wearing two watches
One watch is for current time...
One watch marks future time...
How does that work?
Can you see the future? Yes it's on my right arm.

Pocket Watches.

I’m making more dioramas in broken pocket watches, which make for great containers. I made these to wear at the AVAM gala in November, for fun.

Birthday for a Friend

A dear friend just had a birthday. This image seems to hold a lot of meaning for all of us this year, so I decided to make use it in a found pocket watch. The watch already was monogramed with 2 of the 3 correct initials.

Jeanne did her flower magic, and we added some skeleton hand salad tongs, because they are just cool, as well as useful, if you happen to have some salad.

A Reunion (in a pocket watch)

Pocket Watch with Skeleton greeting a dog

I think one of the best parts of entering the Land of the Dead will be reuniting with old friends (and by friends, I mean dogs).

This scene is made of several layers. The church door opens, too.

This is a silver pocket watch, which was broken when I found it.
