A Gilded Lady Shadow Box

I know I've been creating a load of these little shadowbox type projects, but they're helping me gain momentum for something larger.

I've always said that creativity breeds itself. It's true! You need the momentum of making and creating to make and create. Ideas, and seeds of thoughts and dreams, grow best when you're getting your hands dirty.

I started out thinking this wee box would contain a bit of funky colour, filled with choatic joy, but this happened instead.

Sometimes you aim for frantic joy and get serenity instead.

Perhaps it's my subconscious saying "Calm down, Nichola!" 

So maybe I'll calm down. Just a little. I'll settle for quiet beautiful joy instead of the frantic sing-out-loud sort.

This piece measures approximately 1.5" x 3" x 1.5" Chipboard base, gold dresden, scrapbook papers, and old jewelry bits. Available for purchase HERE

Have a sweet day, and take care of yourself.
