Over the last two weeks, I’ve been splitting time between painting various rooms, adding plants to the exterior, and giving the guest room an update. None of which are completely finished, and all waiting for other elements before I’m done. Between the bigger guest room tasks, I decided to rearrange the bookshelves for a less cluttered look. For a bright spot on the shelves, a simple shadow box art was in order. I started with a piece of white mat board, glue, and a bag of moss.
Before starting, I lightly marked a square 1 1/2 inches from the edges. Working in sections, I spread glue and started placing moss along the edges.
After filling in the entire square, I let the glue dry and shook the excess moss off.
Twenty minutes after starting, I had a finished art piece, ready to frame. Both the color and texture are lovely.
I had an Ikea shadow box that fits perfectly on the shelf. Boom, instant nature art with depth and character. Any nature finds you’ve turned into art recently?
Now time for me to get more plants in the ground.
