Composition with a Little Birdhouse
I thought that I would add this picture . It started life as a Tim Holtz shadow box before I started changing things around . As you can see , I have removed some of the little boxes to make an interesting space to put things in. The little cupboard at the bottom was one of the boxes that I removed and then I added doors onto it . The doors are held shut with tiny magnets and open to reveal a treasure box inside . In the next box there is what appears to be a vase - but is in fact a poppy seed head painted with metallic paint . I then put some beads onto the stalk . At the top of the box are some little mushrooms that I made out of card and painted , along with some flowers . The back of the inside of the box is painted and then stamped . As you can see there is a fairy in the box which was the inspiration for the whole design . This explains why there are so many flowers and butterflies etc in the little boxes . I finished the outside with a stamped design and stuck lace around the edges to neaten them up .I really love making and filling this type of box , so I suspect I will show some more in future . Back soon .
