I love making funky little shadow boxes, they are such fun! I like to mix textiles, paper, jewels, whenever I can, and I love the image of the russian doll, it will never fail to please!!
I like to use old sheet music for the backing too, these old books can be found quite cheaply on flea markets, thrift shops and on the good old british car boots ! ( In fact I think you can find everything at the carboot!!)
