Halloween Shadow Box

"Good gracious bat woman, that's quite a frock you're wearing".

I'm back in the craft/art studio and it feels good. My first project: a Halloween shadow box I made for Natalea http://www.kandeland.typepad.com


I was drawn to this image. There's something ghoolishly elegant about it. A bat cape, ears, wings, but yet, a
ball gown bustle, and yards of fabric. I decided to layer the image to give it a 3D look. I cut out two exact images, and added a third layer which included the bat and paper gown ruffles. 






Embellishments of millinery, jewels, papers, velvet, and a glass shadow box frame were added to this art assemblage.

Natalea send me an amazing shadow box in return. I will post pictures of what I received next! The swap was organized by Vivian, who is a wonderful host.

Blessings,
Ele

Well I have never cared much about Halloween decorations until I saw this box! Now this is way cool! (My friends daughter sounds like this)

Ele, your attention to detail is absolutely what makes your art stand out so beautifully! I looked CLOSELY at your lady's outfit, and I swear she looks as tho' she is truly wearing it. I MEAN, it doesn't look like a 'constructed' piece, but it looks RIGHT! Oh, gracious. I'm muddle-headed this morning! LOL! Just TRYING to say I LOVE the shadowbox!

Love your little shadow box, great job! Where do you get your images? I've always been curious, but never asked anyone, where I can find some of my own to make one for myself?
