...My Spirit Boxes...
Spirit Boxes are original creations filled with wonderfully magical things use your imagination and you might see fairy dust while listening to the sounds of fairy laughter. Each of these beautiful little entities has its own personality but each one is made with love, positive energy and good wishes.
They emerge intuitively or if you prefer, through divine guidance. My only strategic efforts throughout their growing process may be the addition of specific elements and embellishments used initially to help guide in the its process. Spirit Boxes themselves can be lots of things to many people, but most of all they are to be enjoyed. Some may see them as shrines or nichos; or even talisman or amulets while others simply enjoy them as visual art tucked away in a special place.
Creation: I use a variety of magical stuff like handmade and traditional paper as a base and build from there incorporating symbolic elements such as gemstones, crystals, words, symbols, names, stones, found objects, bones, totems, charms and amulets, feathers... and the list goes on.
Size is petite and varies but basically they are seven inches ish tall, and five inches ish in width. The 3-1/2" x 2-1/2" metal box on the back is a gen-u-ine, hot off E-bay ... Altoid box which has been sprayed and then adhered to the back of the actual art work.
What do you keep in a Spirit Box? Anything your heart desires.... a poem, a prayer, an affirmation, a note, coin, token, a charm... or just a word. What do I keep in mine? My hopes, dreams and wishes (figuratively speaking of course).
Thank you for stopping by and remember to walk this path with fire in your eyes, love in your heart and gratitude for it all ... cuz it's gonna be a bumpy ride!
