I am obssessed with Alice in Wonderland at the moment. I am currently trying to read Alice in Wonderland again. I read it 8 years ago when I was travelling through Canada and loved it so I want to read it again to appreciate it but I don’t get much read just a page or two before my eyes are very heavy. So this time round it is taking a lot longer. And more often than not I find myself rereading parts as I didn’t really take it in properly.
On to todays share. This is an idea I have been working on for awhile. I wanted to find a way to use Tin lids in my art. And I worked out one way. I used it as a base to add a scene to. I think I will eventually add the whole thing to a square shadow box when I come across one the right size. In the meantime it is sitting on my desk.
Here’s what I mean by Tin Lid…
And here’s what I did with it.
I arranged them and glued them into place using my hot glue gun. I had the idea that I would glue this straight into a 5×5 frame but it felt a bit lost. So, I put it aside until another idea hit me. While I was perusing Bunnings, I came across the tile section where you can buy single tiles for 79 cents. I knew these would be the perfect thing to add my tin lid to. Now I just need to find a shadow frame that is the right size for the finished tile.
Here’s a close up.
Tomorrow I have another Alice in Wonderland project to share…This time it’s an Art Journal/notebook cover.
