Love Never Rust-Assemblage

Hello Makers!

Love. Such a complicated topic.There are tons of song, movies, paintings, poems, books on the topic, it never ends...I tell ya. Unless humanity and even animals stop feeling love, it will continue til to the end of time. Yet, me and and countless other dreamers will never stop creating stuff around love and hearts. So when I saw the Challenge on Words and Paintery for this month; the theme is "Old Love Never Rust and the colors are green/blue patina and rust"....well to say the least, I was smitten and inspired. It involved love (hearts, yeah) and patina and rust (crazy love there). I decided to create an assemblage piece.

I sculpted the heart using Makin's Clay® No Bake Polymer clay; I cut the center out and used black paper for the base. I used a cigar box for the substrate. Used cardboard, chipboard and metal gears, and metal arrow. The green patina and rust is metal paint and oxidation solution from Modern Masters.

I added gears inside the heart as well as outside; symbolizing the work required in any type love relationship. The arrow is the cupid's arrow (love struck). The patina and rust...is time and change everlasting. But through it all, love prevails. Sheesh! enough romanticism Iris, onto the challenge.
