Under the moon and stars of Friday night, there is a new creation for Finnabair team.
Not so long ago a lot of us were thrilled about the solar eclipse. Watching people looking at the sky through various homemade devices
brought to my mind how deeply we are rooted in natural phenomena. We are
still attracted by the very same processes which fascinated our
ancestors. To highlight this bond between the humane and the cosmic, I created a bit murky altered piece.
As a base of my shadowbox I used a rusty baking tin...
I started with some vintage papers which were next glued to the tin with Soft Gloss Gel
Then I used the same medium to transfer a printed image of an evening landscape. I put the image face down and applied a coat of Soft Gloss Gel onto the
whole surface. This step made papers more resist to soaking. Once
everything was dry, I rubbed the wet printing paper off and once again
applied a coat of the Gel to strenghten the transferred image.
I cut out settings from Star Brads
and attached a few in the corner.
The focal element was also a small tart tin whose shape evoked the rays
of sun. It was the perfect place to use Mica Powders and Mica Flakes in
silver shades to add some shiny accents here and there.
I finished the background with arranging tiny glass pieces, adding a
solar seal and a vintage metal keyhole at the bottom of the baking tin.
Once all of them were higlighted with Mica Powders and Art Sugar, the fullmoon over the forest was complete.
