I needed a break from making mirrors, so whipped up a couple of these.  Grin I love buying cheap shadowboxes at the thrift store to take apart!


Can't really see any detail here, but there's metal bits added for a trigger, a metal cap on the nozzle, and a green brad at the end. Silver, white,and purple paint on a tiny water pistol from a pack of party favors, scrapbook paper, and a thrift store frame, and the word 'Imagine'. Most of my shadowboxes are 'in case of airship pirates/space pirates break glass, but I wanted to make a few different ones.


Second shadowbox! An old earring, a tiny key, a copper coil, the green bulb is from electronic innards, a disc, a pointy bit of plastic. Scrapbook paper and thrift store frame. The label-printed, cutout,glued on cardboard,wrapped in some twisted thin yarn from a tassel. The green leaves? From a sheet of temporary tattoos.

I love the rather girly background contrasted with the lethal raygun!   Cheesy
