Finally, finally, I’m making my version of a shadow box. I’ve wanted to make these for so long, I can’t even remember. No one uses words like ‘yearn’ and ‘long’ anymore (with pretty good reason, since they’re headache-making-melodramatic) – but that’s kind of how I felt about this. All that was missing was any kind of skill at all.
I’ve still got a whole lot of tinkering and figuring out to do. I’m thinking a class in architecture would have been pretty helpful instead of the recurring impulse to just glue everything together. It’s a good, good thing I like making mistakes; so far, I’ve had an abundance of opportunities to learn.
