Making Friends - an art doll shadow box... Item Sold

Often the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect has struggled with in vain. (Carl Jung)

Creating a Shadow Box can offer a unique creative and emotionally expressive outlet. An image, scene, dream, memory or wild imagination can inspire your individual shadow box. My shadow box theme was inspired by the 1896 painting `On the wallaby track' by Australian painter Frederick McCubbin.     
There is an endless source of items readily available to be used including handmade art, toy miniatures and vintage treasures.  The boxes themselves can be made by hand using timber or recycled from cardboard or paper boxes. Newspapers, photos, book pages and scrapbooking materials call all be used for decorating the interior of your box.

The Promise SOLD

The theme of this doll couple has been calling to me for some time and so finally I have been able to create them. The Promise relays the joy and possibilities of a new love. I tried to put forward the sweetness that accompanies the shy, first blush and blooming hunger that accompanies a first encounter.
