|"Forest Journey" - 5.5"x 5.5" x 1.5" Mixed Media Shadow Box|
I finally finished my shadow box mixed media piece! "Forest Journey" is filled with little forest critters and plants. I can't believe how well it turned out. All the little pieces: bunny, bird, mushroom and trees, were all created by yours truely - and boy! Did they ever test my patience! And my ability to get gel medium out of my nails heheh.
I think the bunny below was the hardest, especially creating the ears!
I painted / decorated all parts of all boxes so that they could be displayed in or out of the main shadow box housing:
The sides have a gorgeous floral pattern - two types, each on two sides:
I love this mushroom that I made...I always think of those when I think of forest; well, the squishy Canadian sort of forests :)
I felt this metal plate was perfect for the theme, and goes perfectly with the title, "Forest Journey"
And the best, very best part?!? The little boxes can be moved around as the mood desires!! It's like many pieces of art in one! Bored of it one day? Just take the little boxes out and rearrange to a completely new piece of art :) It's fun just playing with it too - I am loving interactive art these days!
