Hope you are all having a fantastic Mothers Day. Today I have to share with you a Shadow Box I have made for the Guest Designer Challenge at Smeared and Smudged. http://smearedandsmudged.ning.com/group/thechallenger/forum/topics/my-march-challenge This month the guest is Kathi and she challenged us to do Green Steampunk using upcycled items and to Steampunk Critters/Insects. In my Shadow Box I have used recycled coke cans, string, hand made flowers, metal charms, metal beads and cogs. The frame I altered was a picture frame bought from a charity shop which I painted green. I made the shelves's out of cardboard and covered with paper with cogs on. I glued cogs onto a spider, fly and 2 beetles. I glued various charms and beads around the edge and inside the box. I then stamped the male image onto card coloured with promarkers and cut him out and glued inside the box. With the coke cans I first sanded the inside slightly then stamped some steampunk wings, flying machine and a compass. These were then glued into place. Hope you like it see you soon.
I will be entering my shadow box into the following challenges:-
