these dont really look that great but they were a fun challenge.
all the black was one piece of poster board. I used an x-acto knife to cut out pieces, keeping the poster board in one piece as a stencil. I then cut tracing paper to fit the shapes and painted some of them with acrylic. i then cut out and glued them to the backside of the stencil and put that between two sheets of transparent plastic and built a wooden box to fit the art. then strung up rope light inside the box and finally affixed the art work to the front of the box. the cord for the rope light comes out a hole in the back of the box. it plugs in, lights up, and is mildly exciting
