Saturday's Workout - Canvas Back Shrines/Shadow Boxes


This is a collaborative piece that I created with my very talented friend Val from Val's Altered HeART Journey. We each designed a background then sent it to the other person to finish. This is Val's background and my additions to it including canvas back shrines. I wanted to give the impression of vignettes, little piece of time so I hid objects in the small canvases and superimposed the PaperWhimsy image on top of each as well as skeleton leaves and pressed flowers. This is my entry for the Saturday's Workout challenge this week.

Gorgeous rich backdrop to this interesting piece. I enlarged it so I could see all the tiny details. It's my first attempt at one but I had a lot of fun!
