For my Climb High piece I used some old game pieces and a discarded block wagon for this key hook holder.  It has a wire for hanging on the back.
I love Robots and Aliens so I repainted and distressed a small wood cabinet I had for years and incorporated vintage childrens blocks, game pieces, rusty screws and a little paint for my OMG Earthlings! piece. It also hangs on the wall and has thread spool hooks for larger items to hang on.  I thought that was cool when I found this cabinet.

I haven't been perusing on JMS for quite awhile. Since I amassed collections of old toy pieces, metal and plastic over the years, I decided to make a few mixed media collage sculptures, "Climb High" and "OMG Earthlings!"  I think they turned out ok, fun to make and they're functional too.  I love to paint mostly, but its a guilty pleasure to create from my junk piles. I love to look at everyone's creations here, it gets creativity flowing, at least for me.
