I made a shadow box wall hanging, using Sew Special (stamped twice and popped up), and the Pincushion Tag Set for my sentiment. I used Memento Ink and colored with Copics and Prisma Pencils.
The base paper is Papertrey, and I matted with SU! Old Olive. Everything is sponged with T Holtz Antique Linen. The background for my image is a chenille scrap from a discontinued interior decorator's book that I thought looked like quilted squares. It adds lots of texture to the wall hanging. You look at everything differently when you paper craft... because so many different things can be used in your art! I got mine from my dear friend at Terryfic Times (my lss), but if you visit furniture stores and ask, they often have discontinued fabric as well as wall paper, both of which work wonderfully with paper crafts!
I pierced my borders with an Ornare Piercing template and piercer. I tried to replicate some of the quilt patterns I have used in the past when quilting for the border. The little additions to the box include many little family treasures like the tatted lace, an old English thimble, and an old pack of needles. In my sewing basket I found the label from an old tatting spool, and I layered it with several layers of card stock, punched holes, heat embossed several times with UTEE and made a faux button with it.
I hope you have enjoyed my shadow box.... but there's so many wonderful ideas to see, so I will sent you on your way.....
From here... you will hop to the talented and sweet BECCA to be amazed!
Thanks for stopping!
