Artemio week: piece of art

Neil chose a very different path to everyone else, creating a true piece of art on the way. He did not use the stamps but chose the little Artemio cage we sell as a "holder" for a mini album. Now if that's not art with a twist, what is? 
If you are lucky enough to live by a beach (oh do I miss that!), you might think twice about those bits of wood lying around after you have seen this project... 
Would love to read your thoughts on this one... 

I used the bird cage, some beach wood and a Tando circle for the base 
Everything was glued with modeling paste and the branches of the wood holing the "cup" modelled.
When everything was dry I painted the clay bits with paint. stamped some images onto the base which I'd cut up a bit. I used the Frant-age to add texture to the base and Inka Gold over the branches and the wood.

The journal made with the canvas transfer technique from the fabric week. The pages inked and stamped and everything held together with a pin and charm.
