Moby Dick Shadowbox by Groovygirlsuzy17 Moby Dick Shadowbox by Groovygirlsuzy17
These are more shots of my 1850s "box" project on Herman Melville's Moby Dick.

I handmade the box (cut and glued the chipboard together then covered it with book cloth, mi tientes paper that I stained w/coffee, watercolor paper that I painted w/Windsor & Newton watercolors and then sprinkled with sea salt for textural effects, and lastly a vintage world map I got at Art Supply Warehouse.)

The shadowbox illustration is all my own original artwork created with watercolor, micron pen, embroidery floss, transparent jewelry cord, tape, glue, puffy stickers, and a mini ship that I hand carved from cork, painted, etc. (I have a separate deviation for it here: [link])

Omg what an endeavor this project was. Hours beyond hours in creating it, luckily we were given 2 months from start to finish. My teacher was very pleased and gave me an A. I am super uber proud of it, as well.

Wow! This is staggering.
Really excellent work here. I can't help but want to do a shadowbox myself but this piece leaves me quite intimidated.

Just awesome.

Thank you so much! I encourage you to try a shadowbox, don't be intimidated! Keep in mind that I had about 3 months to complete this shadowbox, and I probably spent about 30-40 hours total on. So with alot of time and effort it's possible to make anything great. :)
