Since I bought the I always wanted to create something like that!
I’m thrilled with the result and already thinking on the second theme already!
So, here is a 230mm x 230mm IKEA Deep Frame.
Any comments are welcome!
Specially a theme suggestion for the next one!
I love those frames, especially for the price! There isn’t an Ikea within a couple thousand miles of me, so I don’t have access to them anymore, but I loved them when I did!
Fantastic use, and my suggestion for another theme would be a submarine underwater
Sadly these frames (the Ribba) have been getting cheaper and cheaper because they are degrading them. They don’t use glass anymore (they use a cheap plastic), and the backings are thin and warp easily.
I keep hoping the price will go back up and they’ll bring back the real glass, but I doubt it is gonna happen.
This one I was lucky then! It’s glass ! The back of it I don’t mind warping as it helpw to keep them connected in this occasion!
Maybe it’s only the larger sizes that use plastic (50cmx50cm), but that’s the size I need. Whomp.
Love it, so cute! Space themes are my favorite.
this is great. well designed, great color choices, well executed. bravo.
Seriously. I was so disappointed when I discovered this a few years ago. I would also rather pay the few extra dollars for the heftier product.
Super cute! I like the underwater idea for the next one as well.
What did you use the keep the layers separated? It adds a really great dimension.
Between Each layer I’ve added a 3mm stick of wood! around the frame!
Works really well… I’ve seen people using double sided tape (like the EVA Double sided one).
I really love them. It makes me a bit jealous because I sometimes feel like I don’t have a creative bone in my body.
Just make sure you aren’t confusing creativity with artistic ability – I have very little artistic ability (drawing, painting, basically generating anything from scratch), but can do a lot with adapting other people’s art. If you like a project, use it as an inspiration point! A lot of amazing stuff is from people iterating on other people’s ideas.
If I were to do a similar piece, I’d almost certainly find existing files to adapt with a shuttle and alien instead of trying to make my own even though they are pretty simple shapes. Basically, don’t feel limited by lack of ability to generate an entire design – the internet is full of options to help you out.
First, a forest scene.
Second, the ‘perfect workshop’ scene.
Third, a map scene where you live
If they’re gonna hang together, you could continue that ship on it’s journey Pass the rings of Jupiter, escape a black hole!
Super Cool! Love it
For the foreground, I might have worked up more rocket exhaust-blast layers to help give a bit more depth, but it stands very well just as it is. Nice work!
Excellent piece! Love it!
Just spend some time in Pinterest and you will get inspired to do something!
These are on my list! thanks!
