I'm hosting a Wicked Forest Altered Matchbox Swap on Craftster with my good buddy cackle, and my partner is none other than the amazing microjivvy. I had to step up my game! I made her this little wicked forest shrine. She's a better photographer than I am, and was gracious enough to let me steal her photo. Here's an enlarged picture to show detail:
Then it was time to make the tiny forest. I used
some branches from a dogwood tree to make the tiny trees. There's a moon
way back in the background, but it did get covered by all the woods!
And then there's the little strange man in a suit. He came from Tiny Things Are Cute
and is a little less than one inch tall. Here's a lighter pic of the
interior so you can see him better. There he is, standing near the right
of the box. I put a little moss on the ground, and hung some in the
branches to mimic Spanish moss, which is Nature's spooky decor.
I put some Dresden trim around the edge of the arch for a little
more texture, and then put glued everything up with a cardboard stand.
