I created this little Asian Shadow box for my Designer project for this month’s challenge at Eclectic Ellapu
I love this little shadow box, because it came from a thrift store and cost a whole 50 cents. The part I really love about it is that I am not the one that found it. I was looking around the store for something cool to use in my Art, when Hubby came up to me with it in hand and asked if I could use it. What a sweet Guy don‘t you think? I have enough 2nd hand stuff to last me an entire lifetime and he doesn’t complain and brings me even more. :)
This is actually a very small box. I an not sure what it was for originally (maybe small soap) but I have never see one that tiny before. I painted it with Red Acrylic Paint and then applied a layer of Matte Gel Medium. From Top left to right and so on. The Sentiment is one of my Digital Sentiments, The Paper Rose was made out of brown packing material and which I dyed with re-inkers ink and then dry brushed with Glitter Glue. I applied the Rose over a small piece of gather tool which I got from my friend Phyllis who always gives me the most wonderful things to use in my art. I applied a bit of Glitter to the tool as well. For the bottom left
Asian Montage Framed Geisha 1 which I colored with bic and Sharpie markers. I also drew the Asian Bamboo Background showing behind the the fan above and used as a backdrop in all the sections.
