Welcome

Welcome! Artfully Musing is a blog dedicated to sharing art and the techniques and products used. I'll be showcasing collage, altered and mixed media art as well as miniature. I hope you'll check back often and are inspired. Thanks for visiting! Laura

NOTICE: AlphaStamps has moved to a new website. Unfortunately, I was not aware the product links in my blog posts would not forward to the products on the new website. This has affected both the links in the posts and my Collage Sheet & Digital Image Set Catalogs. I ask for your patience while I work to fix the links. I’ll be fixing the newest posts first working back in time. Lastly, I’ll fix the catalogs. In the meantime, if you encounter broken links and need to finding something you can either use the name of the product to search the new AlphaStamps.net site or you can email me using the “Email Me” button at the top of the left column of the blog and I will do what I can to help.

Marie Antoinette Inspired Altered Picture Frame

This is a piece for a swap in the Marie Antoinette Art group.  I started with a vintage frame I purchased on Etsy (in the picture below).
I embossed a chandelier on the glass and added some rub-on transfers.
I collaged some vintage images on the insert.
I glued the glass and the insert into the frame.
To the frame I attached various pieces of jewelry, brass findings, pearls and rhinestones.
I’ll share the one I get from my swap partner as soon as it arrives.
