I used up all of my papers, and my cigar boxes, except for one lid. Here's what I did on the second one--
I made a shadow box! I made all ofthe collage items to put into it--
I like to think of these as puzzle pieces. I arrange and rearrange them until they just "fit" into place--you know, just like putting a puzzle together. And I love when I find just the right touch to add--
This was from a necklace that I had, and I just colored it with alcohol inks. I love alcohol inks--they're great for adding color to metal or glass, or anything for that matter.
And as for the other cigar box--I took my own advice. I'm using it for storage for my neocolor crayons. One reason being, is that they're not that cheap, and I want to take care of them. The other reason is that I've become very attached to these little guys. I love my crayons!
And also, I know I don't say this enough, but I just want to thank everyone for visiting me and for all of your comments! Plus, I want to thank you for sharing your art with me--I've learned so much in the last few months--I can't believe it. I think it's great that we can share and learn from each other--so thanks guys!
