Playing around with perspective with the Tim Holtz Cityscape dies from Sizzix to make this cool wallhanging.
My project for this month's A Vintage Journey is called "City on a Square". Well, I found the idea of creating depth with successive layers of cardboard kind of interesting so I thought I would make a similar project. I played around with dimension and color to improve the depth. This post shows you how add a sense of dimension with the successively smaller cardboard frames.
Rather that making a square project, I used a rectangle as the basic shape of the project and the Sizzix Cityscape dies from Tim Holtz. Here is the finished piece.

|Layer 5 - more detailed, more buildings|
|Layer 6 - increasing the height, more overhangs|
