Filmstrip shadowbox as a nature assemblage

Today I am sharing another project inspired by nature, one of my favorite themes.  When I saw this Filmstrip Shadowbox, I knew it had to be mine!  After I got it, I puzzled over the decision on which one of my many ideas I should use, and with which orientation I wanted to use  You can place this piece either horizontally or vertically.  My first inclination was a Steampunk project, or maybe a fun retro pin-up theme would be great.  This would also be perfect for family photos, or anything with a movie theme.   All you need is your imagination.
