Mixed Media Monday~

This weeks challenge was: metal.I've added some faux metal pieces to these glass jars that will be part of my Witches spice cabinet that I'm making. I am loving the look of these, heaven help me...that only means everything is going to get the metal treatment until I've tired of it! Here is a close-up of the black widow spider in the metal band around this old glass bottle~ You can read more about the little glass jars with the skulls on them here. This metal looking band was made using tape, a plastic spider and some paint.You can view more art pieces by checking out the weekly challenge site for mixed media art here---> Mixed Media Blog.

I LOVE what you're doing with the jars! I would have sworn the band was metal until I read it's only tape. Beautifully done! Creative and unique! Applause.
