$ 170  

One of my favorite places... Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando Florida. I especially love walking through the Walt Disney exhibit. Part of the exhibit includs Walt's early work on film including a display showing how he came up with the feel of dimension in his early films. He did this simply by layering images on top of each other. I remember telling my hubby that it reminded me of a cake...layers upon layers of artsy creative goodness.

This shadowbox was inspired by that design, my love for dimensional art and by the always inspiring Walt Disney himself. His quote “Keep moving forward” sits gently on my shoulder as I continue on my creative journey.
