The Making Of (Part 3)

Here are photos of the finished piece that I have been showing progression pictures of in my last two posts.

Let’s begin with the ted that lives inside the box. I didn’t name her but I’ve come to find out that she does have a name given to her by her new owners. It is Ruby. A very fitting name.

Here’s a close-up of her face.

Next up is the front of the box. If you read the first part of this series, you have seen it pretty near completed already.

The details that I showed underway in my last post are shown here finished.  First there’s the heart box lid with another heart inside – and scrolls or curly Q’s on either side.

Here’s a close-up of a couple of the tiny boxes that were painted, lined and had text on vellum added to them.

And the middle bit. This little witticism cracks me up.

Here’s the left size in its entirety.

Now to the right side.

These are the dominoes set in place – each one represents an aspect of the new owners’ lives.

This shows the archway and the quote within. If possible, I like for the box to appear complete if the bear happens to go visiting from time to time.

And here at last, you can see the finished box with the bear in place.

I thoroughly enjoyed making this piece and using various techniques create it. I hope it brings lots of smiles to the new owners and conjures up some good memories in the years to come.

  5. Once again Ginger, thank you so very much. Ruby and her box are wonderful. Ann was so overcome you reduced her to tears.
    I gave you a pretty thin brief and you came up with what I can only describe as wonderful - in the sense that I am full of wonder at it as well as finding it beautiful. Our thistle and shamrock are well entwined and of course we do enjoy our travelling and dancing. You are clever in the way you managed to use a couple of my photos on the dominos - how very clever.

    Hugs,

    Alan

    Hey Sebastian,

    You'll be delighted to know that Ruby has settled in well. She was a bit overwhelmed by the big bears, but Tom, Zeke and I soon stepped in to make her feel at home.

    Hugs,

    Jock, Zeke, Tom

    Hey Sebastian,

    You'd love it over in this hug. There are lots 'n lots of bears. Some of them are huge, others are colourfully dressed and there's one called Jock who's what they call an eejit over here. He goes off with Mr Alan and drinks lots of beer, but he's great fun too.

    Hugs,

    Ruby

    1. To Alan:

      It was an honor to be a part of this very special occasion! Thank you for the opportunity.

      To Jock Zeke & Tom:

      I know you guys are a great welcoming committee! No doubt Ruby will feel right at home!

      To Ruby:

      I'm glad you have lots of company! I think you will have an exciting life there. Keep in touch. You have some special people and bears in your life. Enjoy!

      Love and hugs to you all!
