The inside of the altered tin by LOUISE CROSBIE

Hi there. 
Well, as promised, here is what I decided to do to the inside of the altered tin I made last time.
I have made a little 3D scene inside featuring some more features from the Cosmos scrapbook paper pad. 
I painted inside the tin with black gesso first and then used some metallique waxes to make it look a bit like a nebula or maybe the northern lights in the sky. I also added some glamour dust glitter so the sky twinkled. But you can not really see that in the photos. So much is covered up and the light needs to hit the waxes to show up the colour. 
Anyway, I put some snowtex on the bottom of the tin and sprinkled glamour dust to make a snowy landscape to set my scene in.
I cut out a moon and a wolf from the papers, painted two chipboard trees white, and arranged them in the tin using 3D double sided foam tape and glue.
On the other side is a quote cut from the papers. I think it translates as something like...
look at the sky every time your ego speaks and you will realise what is insignificant.”
Thanks for reading.
