I call this collage/assemblage "The Theater of Life". Amidst the sparkle and glitz you can find an array of whimsical characters displayed with colorful costumes. After stamping each one, I colored and highlighted them with glitter. The altered wooden cigar box allowed me the perfect stage for my display. Decorative papers and ribbons created the back drop, curtains and stage front. Accenting the accordion folded curtains are delicately hanging seed bead strands. The final detail was adding the brightly colored glass beads, stage front.
