I have abandoned all hope of getting back to one of the big projects, and am instead working on things I know I can finish in a few days.

Here's my totemic tiger shadowbox, completed on 17 April, 2013. I bought the shadowbox with tigers in mind, several months back. Everything but the sticky letters came from my stash. I don't know whether to be pleased or embarassed, but at least it all finally got used for something.

Materials: 7 Gypsies Solo Shadowbox (approx 6½x6½"), assorted glues, black confetti cardstock, printed paper, glitter glues and odds and ends

Small sections, from the top: Starbucks coffee sticker and Peruvian tiger bead; polymer clay pendant and postage stamp; National Wildlife Federation sticker (it's supposed to be a tiger lily) and vintage brass stamping (ditto)

Main section: Cover off a small spiral notebook, German scrap, letter stickers

Top of shadowbox: Vintage brass stamping

Text around the edges: The first stanza of Blake's "The Tyger", done with a labelmaker because my handwriting sucks

ETA: And it's up on the west wall above the windows, next to the French memo board full of tiger things. I didn't even fall off the paint ladder. Go me?
