This is one of those rare smaller pieces that I made a few weeks ago where I used none of my usual vintage photos...until I decided to move it into a larger cigar box and re-work the idea a bit.
The cigar box...lid removed...covered with old mapping paper and sanded.
I've been "partitioning" much of my work lately.
Adding the inside balsa wood "borders" that the glass will sit upon (the same mapping paper is also glued onto these little border pieces).
An old hostess button as well as some photos glued (clear silicon) to the bottom of some glass lenses...
I grabbed this bag of cheap plastic magnifying lenses at a thrift shop some time ago...enough to last me a life time.
Getting everything positioned and glued (and screwed) into place.
The final piece...multi-layered and covered with glass...a shrine to hostesses everywhere.
