If looks could kill...

My sister's birthday party is this Sunday (hopefully she won't be reading my blog before then! lol) so I decided to make her a papier mache dress in a shadow box. I've always loved shadow boxes. You see, I love art to hang on my wall, but more than that, I love art that is three dimensional. I love being able to reach out and touch the contours of things. As I've mentioned before, I'm a really tactile person. So, anyhow, this is what I came up with! I hope she likes it!

While I was creating this dress for my sister, Sisi was at her desk, finger painting up some magic of her own!

With a little bit of tempra paint, some craft paper, and a little imagination...

...masterpieces are born!

I love Sisi's painting, but the thing I love the most of this post are those cute little fingers covered in paint.. Aww.. But hey, you made those too ;-)!! Haha

Aren't they the most wonderful little fingers? By far, one of my three finest creations!!! Thank you, girls :)

Well, I thought about painting it and make little polymer figurines and give them a world of their own. I also thought about paper-cutting-work, in a 3d kind of way, just simple and plain.. I also thought about making some kind of memorybox, with little crocheted clothes and maybe a handmade babydoll..I also thought about quilling, i've got a lot of those little papers.. But hey, I can combine all those things and come up with some kind of fantasy world. Or I can just let this shadowbox rest for a while, until he screams want he wants me to do ;)!!
