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.
The right side:
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.
