Life is like a box full of challenges





Cloth Paper Scissors
has a call for entries for a reader challenge: Life is like a box full of ......
It's due in on 2/27 and of course, I have waited till the last minute to finish. I have to retake pictures tomorrow and get them printed out at Staples, then mail it in via Priority mail so it get s there in time. I am stuck on the box full o' honey, so I took it the little box a step further to this 12"x12"x2" shadow box. Remarkably, I think I have learned a few things from my fine teachers over the course of the past year. This piece has more depth to it than anything else I have done. I'm very happy with it, I just pray I can get good professional looking shots of it tomorrow.

very cool piece. I like how you've repeated the box feel with lace & tray(or frame) "walls" sticking out. The lock is an eye catching touch too
