Hmm..doorway to space, or doorway to the stars? The second of my two cdrom/disc drive/whatever metal boxes, disassembled and embellished. A picture of the northern lights from an old calendar, shootingstars were an odd earring, a metal corner plate under the image pointing up, rhinestones, odd earring and found metal triangle on top, odd screws,washers, beads, two filigree earring dangles at the top ofthe door, bolts,capacitors, button,random broken plastic and metal pieces, shiny sequin stars, nail glitter,sealer, ect ect.  I first spray painted the box black, them immediately sprayed a light mist of silver for the background.

This is great!  I love the painting job and how it looks like technology made softer.  You must have great vision to see a CD-ROM drive and think of this.  I'm super impressed.

WOW  Shocked
This has got to be one of THE coolest things I've seen in a while. I absolutely love technology, as well as astronomy.. Oh and green is one of my favorite colors. So this is a very wonderful piece of work you've done here!
It almost has a time machine feel to it. Very rad Smiley

This is SO COOL!  I really like the pop of green against the metallic looking background-which was an awesome choice (the black with silver on top) as it ties all the different elements together Smiley
