This shadow box is dedicated to a trip to Iceland, and we all know that this land is really special and amazing, so a part of the shadow box features rocks and sand – they are volcanic in Iceland, I bet you know that. You may also attach some personal pics from this place if you have them, here the author omitted them but I think they will make the piece more personalized.
