Mini Shadow Box



I've had this mini shadow box (measures 4.5 x 11 inches with the inside boxes about 1 x1)for over three years and would get it out from time to time and then put it away again. This is my play week and I decided to play with this. Painting it with the blues and white wash effect was the most fun for me...I loved how the colors turned out. Deciding what to put where was much much harder. I spent far too much time worrying about how it would look, would it be balanced, would it be appealing and far too little time doing what I liked. This is the part of the process that bogs me down and keeps me from making more progress. Thanks to those who look. To get a better view, click on the image to enlarge.

Love your shadowbox...now I need to dig mine out of the attic (or wherever Mr. Monk keeps hiding it) and do something fun with it!
