Broken Window Memories

I made this at Friday Altered Art night at the Montgomery shop/gallery. Heat guns aimed at photos produce a stress reaction that causes the surface of the photo to crack. Looks a bit like a broken window, doesn't it? This was one those times when an 'uh oh' became a 'oooooh'.

Photo I took on mat board with modeling paste, acrylic paints, pigments and handmade paper.

I really like this piece. Boy, this would be a good way to use up the photos that might usually end up in the trash. Just distress them and use them in other art pieces. Great idea!
