We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Shadow box adventure!

The Fearless Four recently tackled a shadow box (about 7.5 inches square).  We all had different themes, but put together, I think they could tell a story!

I went for an undersea theme, and I've just started here, with some book page fronds (a current favourite of mine - see previous post!), and initial layers of paint.

Also assembled and painted some bits and pieces, though I didn't use everything.

Only one of us finished on the day, and I completed mine over the weekend - with a bit of crackle paint on the frame, and some bubble wrap stamping.  Inside, a few shells, including abalone, a pebble picked from the beach (on recent holiday), some fishing net, dots of glossy accents for bubbles, and a plastic fish - painted and glittered!

Close-up of catch of the day - some rusty things (painted charms really!) and a couple of pearls.  Treasure guarded by Super Silvery Seahorse - fearless guardian of the deep!

Now for the others .....

Lin's atmospheric forest, spot the shy owl and ssssnakes in the grass!

Linda's fab red bicycle, and cute hedgehog.

Monica's shell paradise.

Great fun!
