The Secret Garden

When I started this project I intended it to just be a book box, but then I realized what on earth would I ever use one for?

I thought since it was a gardening book it would be appropriate to put a garden in it.
So I brought it to life with some dried flowers, fern leaves, Poppy pods, a few feathers and a humming bird's nest.

Peacock Mask

I made this mask for the costume I wore to Jill's masquerade ball. It is molded to for my face out of plaster, except the beak of course that I added later. I painted it and added all real peacock feathers. It was lots of fun to make and looked awesome with my cape of tail feathers.
