Box Finish {Photos}

Where were we? Oh yes, the most recent box project. Happy to see it completed and sad that the fun of creating it is over. And happy at the prospect of another beginning. It can be weird here at times . . .

Onto the photos → → → → →

Here’s a few of the front underway. I really loved doing this part – messing about with letters and glue and paint and paper. Bliss.

This is the box front with the title in place: The Snowmaker

And this is the back. This is a very large transfer – the biggest I have done. These words by J.B. Priestly reflect my exact feelings about that first snow fall.

Once opened The Snowmaker is revealed in his winter wonder-lab. He has all the makings for a glorious and beautiful snow.

The left side – a bit quirky – unless you normally see icicles and snowflakes and snowballs hanging from the clothesline. There are also some snowy scene postcards for inspiration.

The right side with The Snowmaker standing on blocks of ice. Unlike me, he loves loves loves the cold. He thinks it’s invigorating! One of my favorite details here is the bottle hanging from the tree slab. (Those bottles contain precious samples from his best work.)

This is without The Snowmaker in residence.

Finally, The Snowmaker himself. I accidentally fell in love with this little bear. He’s almost but not quite 5 inches tall.

Now I believe it is time to begin thinking about springtime. And Easter and bunnies and flowers and stuff but first this quote which I used on The Snowmaker box:

There is nothing in the world more beautiful than the forest clothed to its very hollows in snow. It is the still ecstasy of nature, wherein every spray, every blade of grass, every spire of reed, every intricacy of twig, is clad with radiance.

    1. Hi Jeanie,

      I think if he could figure out how to distribute it so some people would get to see a little more and some people a little less it would be great eh? Ha ha.

      Thank you,

    1. Hi Joyce,

      That is quite the compliment! I know it's nearly Spring but I couldn't let this idea go any longer without bringing it forth. Good luck to Prudence - however it turns out - finding them or not finding them!
