Creative Jumpstart 2015 - Jenny Holiday & Aaron Nieradka Inspiration

 
 
Jenny and Aaron's tutorial involved creating with a painted wooden box  (more like a shadow box) with a mixed media covered piece of foam anchored to the back of the box to look like a piece of cake... (you can see a pic of it on their blog)
sooooo very clever and totally convincing!  It looked real!
 
Anyway,  feeling inspired by this, and with no wooden box at hand,
shrunk down to miniature!
A match box! 
Not the teeny weeny match box, but the size up - its about 7cms long.
 
And opened....
 just like a little gift....
I decided to do a little heart of foam, painted with heavy gel medium and then covered in red with some burnt umber edgings...
 
 
This was something really different to do.
