I decided to make another piece with an Illamasqua eyeshadow box. I wanted to create something more abstract than the scene I created before.
Using the name of the eyeshadow as inspiration, I stitched between the two sides of the box with black thread- making a network of both connecting and parallel thread.
I cut thing strips of tracing paper and slid them into thread in different postions. I then used a pipette and ink pull the thread and tracing paper together. Finally I glued the front of the box back onto the main section to complete the piece.
I also created something with a Sugarpill eyeshadow box.
This time I took inspiration from Tako’s colour itself- white. For this I created clouds on an ink background and added blue inked rain drops. I then built up the scene with cut out paper clouds attached with foam squares at different heights from the base of the box.
I used black cardboard to create a kite silhouette and also attached that with a foam square, glueing one final cloud shape to the kite itself. I attached black thread to the centre of the kite, pulled tight and glued to the bottom of the box.
I used red thread, attached it to the bottom of the kite, twisted it round and glued it to the bottom of the box.
Finally, to finish, I cut out the ‘Tako’ from the box sticker and attached it to title the piece.
