So over on the UKScrappers swaps forum, I was partnered with Rebecca, to create a matchbox shrine on the theme Things With Wings. This went through my head as 'things that fly' - and I chose birds, butterflies, and time. I tried my best to make this personal to Rebecca, and I hope she likes it:
Also, I got drawn into chat in the Screen Swap running alongside it, and - before I knew it - I was in on that one too! Again, with Rebecca, again on that theme... ,This time I used lyrics from one of my favourite songs. So, again, I hope that she likes this my efforts:
Here are some close-ups of my 'mechanical' winged wonders:
Both of these items went through several incarnations - the first shrine and screen were Stampotique bats that didn't work... The second shrine had all sorts of things going on, until I realised that nobody made the other item I wanted... The second screen had mesh panels in the centre but kept collapsing...
But I'm still proud of how these final versions turned out - even if it was hte most severe case of leaky elbow I've ever had...!
Thanks for looking,
