Hello ladies… today I would like to show you the first shadow box I have made (before it gets all dusty)
If you have not had a chance to look or missed the posting – you can find the second one I made here.
I did get this cute box from my friend Tammi for Christmas and I must say at first I was a bit intimidated by it but honestly once you make one… it is truly addictive. At first I thought the larger ones would be harder to decorate but making 2 I think it would be easier. You could add more images and also I have found the selection of things you could add to the shadow boxes a bit better.
Most of my supplies come from the Tim Holtz range. He is just making so many amazing things! Its really awesome – and a bit expensive lol – I get easily carried away.
If you notice compared to the Spring shadow box tray I did the wording on the wooden frame… this is all done with a tissue tape I found in the Tim Holtz section. I love the effect, because at first you might think its stamped. All you need is patience and a sharp Exacto knife.
