I used the box it came in as the main frame and painted it. I also added some medal decoration. I cut and sanded the woodblocks to make buildings. Pulled apart the burlap to make the grass. Used glue and acrylic paint.
I wanted to show the change that happens in time from simply things (farm/barn) to more complicated (skyscrapers). I wanted to display the objects much like how a shadow box is used today to show important items from the past and present. The clock is broken since the objects are timeless.
It was challenging to just use the provided objects, but I enjoyed the challenge.
