This time the challenge is to MAKE A SHADOW BOX.
When Angelica told us what the challenge was, I was flummoxed 'coz I hadn't a CLUE how to do one!!
Hmmm, good old Google to the rescue! I Googled 'shadow box' and it came up with millions of ideas.
They all called for a proper frame and although I do have some, they were pretty inaccessible at the time, so weren't an option. There was only one thing for it.....make a box, glue it shut and cut the middle out.
Here's the result........
For the main image, I used 'PK-210 Natalee'. The gorgeous 'daisies' are from PK-240 Say it with flowers', (One of my favourite sets). Not forgetting the 'sun', PK-M16, You are my sunshine.
The cloud background is a print out by Pink Petticoat.
I made the 'grass with my Martha Stewart punch and stuck it onto the first fold in front of Natalee. The border around the front of the aperture is also a MS punch, my latest fave, the little flowers. The branch is a McGill punch that's almost identical to the MS one. Not forgetting the picket fence MS punch at the back. The flowers in the corner were made with X-cut retro daisy punches finished with a brad in the centre.
I had thought I wouldn't be able to rise to this challenge, but I reckon I did.
Please run to the Peachy Keen challenge blog for all the details and 'have a go'! There are two a fab prizes on offer , (as always) and you'll see the most amazing creations by my MEGA clever DT buddies.
I really enjoyed making this shadow box and I'm quite proud of it too.
Thanks for calling by
