Altered Guitar

A work in progress:
The guitar was an old beat-up Lyra 3/4 size guitar that was up in my mother's attic for years.
It's pretty unplayable, but that doesn't mean it can't be pretty!
I used cardstock, velum, found images, and orgami paper
I'm stringing surplus seed beads and then stringing them on the gutiar the usual way.
I'm giving this guitar to add to a collection of wonderfuly funky painted and altered guitars at my favorite local coffee shop, Molten Java - located in Bethel, CT. Stop in for their in house roasted coffee if you're in the area, all fair trade beans! DELICIOUS!
I am starting my next guitar already - a commission for a friend's husband's birthday - she's stealing some old flyers from his shows and we're going to scan and shrink them to add to the decorative elements I have in store.
Stay tuned for more guitars!
I'm also gearing up for the onslaught of craft fairs and hoping to have enough inventory in time to participate.

Come On Up To The Lab - And See What's On The Slab...

All sorts of fun things are afoot in the studio! I have a bunch of new supplies, some great ideas and pretty soon I'll have a bunch of time.

I'm curious about working with silk ribbon, resins, sequins, and wood - that's just some of the things I'll be playing with. I'm also about to alter an old beat up guitar as an art project for a friend of mine - and I'll post photos of that as well.
