Industrial galaxy

Ever had an idea and then after delving into it, it takes on a whole new life? That's what happened here!

I had 6 blocks that were covered with different papers on each side and then were stacked on my window sill. And I was over it! So I thought 'Let's upcycle and do something bright for Spring!' It was in my head, but my imagination had other ideas once I started!

I glued my blocks together and did the top one wonky. Then I added texture with torn pieces of cardboard and art stones. And as the Rolling Stones used to sing, 'Paint it black!'


After that, I got out my Finnabair supplies and went to work. This is far from Spring - it's out in the galaxy! Since I'm a Gemini, it's got some twin moons and faces as well 🌛



I used Blue Green and Powder Blue rust pastes, Romance Pink Metallique, and Firebird and Blue Lagoon waxes. There's a combination of metal, resin, foam, and chipboard embellishments adorning this galaxy as well!







It's really an other-worldly pyramid of rich colors and textures galore!
