SATW Mid Month reveal April 2014 Challenge 12 - close ups of my shadow box "Thread of Life"

Happy Easter to ya all!

This morning I sat out on our balcony having my morning coffee for the first time this spring. All the cats were sunbathing and smelling the potted daffodils we have out there. Made me really so happy!

Anyhow, back to scrappy business. My apologies for not posting the close-ups of my take on the SATW April moodboard yesterday but unexpected tummy business decided to alter my plans for a while.

HERE is the link to the current challenge & the
2nd reveal based on the same challenge HERE.

First the finished 20 x 20 canvas mounted in a deep shadowbox;

happy experiment that I'll try again!
