I painted this ages ago. It was a fabric covered piece, with an oval glass painted insert and metal decorations. So, painted the fabric greenish, the glass shades of gold and brown, the frame highlighted,and the metal with brass. There it sat for months.
Finally got the bug to do something with it yesterday. The small green frame was from a thrifted shadowbox I disassembled,the woman's portrait from a coffee table book of wallpaper design I saved from the trash,added a tiny gear and rhinestone to her hair. Raygun is a water pistol, painted with airbrush color,nail polish, and acrylic paint. Added the last two rhinestones,the tip from an ink pen, a plastic screw piece, and an auto fuse to the raygun.  Since there is no glass over this, I wanted the raygun on hooks, but didn't have any. So, used some barrel glass beads topped with pearls from deconstructed jewelry. The message inside the little gold frame is, 'And they say diamonds are a girl's best friend!'  I showed it to my daughter, and she said 'THANK YOU for not making it pink!' Hee.

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

Thank you! Most of these I've made are shadowboxes,with an 'in case or airship pirates/space pirates,break glass' (depending on if the were more steampunkish or buck rogers-ish). But I'm branching out a bit,   Cheesy
