Hummingbird Shadow Box

I am still loving shadow boxes. I think my fascination with them started with one of those German kitchen wooden shadow boxes that always hung on the wall in my home growing up. I still love them.  My latest shadow box includes a hovering hummingbird sipping nectar from the flowers.

My designing is a little more stylized this time. I have been skipping around with the bird themes. Some trend more toward realism and others are more stylized. You certainly can change the visual impact by using different papers in the back. I used a pearly pink that I had in my stash. That paper made it clear that the birds and flowers would be simple black and white.

The construction techniques for this shadow box are basic 3D skills. I have made a step-by-step video tutorial to show you how to assemble it.

Here are the links to the resources for this fun project:
