It all started with the stamps from Paper Artsy which I won in a blog candy. I just love them! Somewhere in a blogland I have also seen great paper dolls made from matchboxes and they inspired me to made this shadow box. Creative upcycling makes me very happy and I love to use ordinary items surrounding us. As always you can see some stages of my creative process. For the paper dolls I used some Gelli Plate prints I made earlier. Hope you like my shadow box!
It is my older son's birthday today and I still can't believe he is already 37. I wanted to make him a special Angel, featuring his favourite activities: bird watching and tinkering. I made a little assemblage in a small (6 x 11 cm) can, using some resin elements which I coloured with inks and acrylic paints. I have also used some metal parts and my favourite goggles. Love them!
Today I want to share with you an altered metal lantern with the original dial from the old clock Lots of mixed media products were used here but I have to mention artExtravagance Rust Effect Paste from Prima - it really worked!
It was my way to honour the memory of my dear husband in my own positive way.
He passed away 3 years ago at the age of 59 and I missed him every single day.
