Something new from the studio ~

Do you ever make something that you LOVE?
When I make these nature assemblages...
it's truly HARD to part with them
because they strike a chord with me.

This is one of those shadow boxes you find at the thrift.
It has three sections and they usually have these fake little
potted flowers in each section ~ I know you've seen them.

Well, I've had this one for YEARS.
And I'd even ripped the stuff out a long time ago too!
But I finally made my way to it and decided it was time to
transform it into what it was meant to be.

A simple assemblage.
Filled with beautiful fragments of nature...
gathered specimens...
and wonderful elements from the wood.

You can see the shadow box part in the photo below...

I've just listed this piece in my Etsy store!

Well dear friends, we have another week ahead of us....
what shall we do next???
I hope you can carve out a little creative time just for YOU

Wishing you a great Monday precious friends,
hugs and love,

Dearest Dawn, this is absolutely an amazing collection of nature`s gifts-I love every section of beautiful elements- and how you pinned the cloth to ,the wonderful book page covered ,background.
I also love the simplicity in every section, and yet all together it makes a gorgeous complex whole, of what wonderful gifts to find in our nature.
Sweetie you are a master in making (among other things ) the most beautiful nature collages .
My day started with sunny weather- I hope yours will,too.
Happy day to you,whatever you are to do my dear friend.
Love and hugs,Dorthe
