After all the excitement of two blog hops and a new Design Team I thought I’d take a little breather from posting. That doesn’t mean I haven’t been making or thinking about making and I have lots to share with you over the coming weeks. As you know, I love creating little pieces of whimsy, especially tiny scenes and today I have a little shadow box that I have been working on.
A few weeks ago I mentioned that I struggled to find shadow boxes but had invested in a couple of lightweight “proper” boxes. These are proving to be very handy – not too deep and easy to cover with paints or paper. I gave this one a couple of coats of red paint and then dry brushed some white over the top.
I’ve used Tim Holtz dies for the deer, trees and numbers using patterned papers, glitters and inks to decorate. On the base of the box is some white Icelandic moss to which I’ve added white paint and white glitter for some wintery sparkle. All the elements were secured with glue gel to add dimension.
I added some holly leaves, red gems and a little sparkly snowflake to finish the whole thing off.
I’m linking this up to City Crafter Challenge Blog for the current challenge which has the theme of deer.
Thanks for buzzing by.
