WHAT! A Daily Deviation?! :faint: remake salmon heart bullet I can't even... 

I've now been able to instal lights in my shadow box! :lightbulb: revision I'm never really the one to brag - but this photograph just dosen't do it justice salmon heart bullet 

I wanted to create the feeling of "fairytale meets cave painting" and that it seems like there is a whole world inside a little box. I'm really loving doing this - it takes forever but the result is worth it :lovesquee: 

I'm very new in creating with this media and in these dimensions so if you have any tips or tricks don't hesitate to share! I've been inspired by Hari and Deepti

- Foam board 
- Glue

Hi Sofie, just read through your tutorial on creating the layers for the shadow box. I can't use Photoshop - how would I go about creating something similar manually?

Is it OK to download your hidden forest image and use it for other projects or is it copyrighted?

Simply delightful. I've tried to make a few of these, and it's never worked out, which only makes me happier to see when others do them well!

Oh no I'm sorry to hear that! Is it the lighting part that has been difficult? 
I'm really glad you like mine Meow :3

I always tried to make designs that had too much open space, and the paper would warp in places it shouldn't. Some of the overlays also didn't come out the way I intended, and they came out looking weird. I never got to the point where I tried to light them, so that may be another obstacle for the future!

Ah yes - I understand! 
I've made a kind of tutorial on how I made the template for shadow boxes like this one. Maybe it'll help you sort out some of the problematics you've had? Meow :3

This is gorgeous, amazing work! Now this may be a weird question but may I have your permission to make a black and white version of this and use it as a tattoo?
