My finished piece


Well the day has finally arrived and I can share with you my completed piece.

As I said with my last months letters that I didn't want a flat presentation and was working on a 3 dimensional look and am very pleased with the result.

I used picture mounting board for the actual box as I knew this would give me a good solid cube. I had made a small sample to make sure the colours were in their correct order as this was so important. I have anchored fishing line to the base on the inside and then through a floor 1 cm below the top of the box. This enable it to hang slightly off skew to make it more interesting .

I had to have 28 letters to complete my piece hence the addition of the Question and Exclamation marks.

Hope you like it ?

Regards Ann
