The first of two pieces for this weeks completed art is a shadow box that was actually started and given to me by a friend of mind whose name is Mary. She had started it with a broken box as the glass was out but I used that for my implant of the piece of chicken wired screen! She had the lady and the lace and black and white papier already as well. Added the wasp nest and dripped it with bees wax. Special ordered the gold metal bees and placed five to make it a balanced piece. I prefer uneven numbers. The topper crown is from a bottle of crown royal(I think) glued on top well with some E6000 than added the red rhinestones and glittered them over with sparkling cheap gold acrylic paint. Placed the screen in the notched out part where the glass once was and than added that antique broach, so it's pinned on there and then a touch of glue to make sure it won't fall off, glittered up the center rose to bring unity to the piece integrating the silver and gold metal tones.My friend Mary had added the white bust and I just had the perfect wings for her made of cloth so on they went. The clock under glass came from my collection of doll house miniatures and I have received several of those in lots so thought it would be great to part with one here. I also had these little brown balls that might be seeds and they mimic the nest in a sort of 3rd or fourth dimension so in they went as well.

but I think it's all going to poor under water Texas. I pray for the people who live there, God bless the people of Texas and other states where they are having so many natural disasters. Bless the people all over the world who are suffering from earthquakes and other such horrific experiences, especially the children Lord.
