Finally done! My diorama/shadow box/up-cycled-cardboard-box art is finished. I’m loving it.
I used cheesecloth, buttons, papers, tapes, thread, rhinestones, measuring tape, trims, embellishments and several different mediums to assemble this art piece. It’s different, fun, and fashionable and will look stunning on my bedroom gallery wall. Now I need to start working with some turquoise to break up all the pinks I’ve done. THAT will be a fun change. I’ve already prepped two 5×5 boards and plan to make little paintings that can include ATC art that can be interchanged.
Repurposed ceramic tile trivets from the dollar store.
Wires, ribbons, and rhinestones are just the tip of the iceberg on these tiles. I used one of my craft mirrors and some string pearls to create this standing mirror. I added to the mirror by using a white rub on and this totally reminds me of a vanity table mirror I had as a little girl.
Today I’m starting a new painting with a bird as the subject. I’m going to be bees-waxing this one and I’m really looking forward to firing up my melting pot and relaxing to the aroma therapy of melted beeswax as I paint.
Happy June to you all.. I hope your summer is inspired!
