I haven't had a camera for over a year. So now I am catching up on posting my crafts.
Last January my fiance proposed to me with a mood ring he had purchased at our favorite nostalgic toy shop (filled with action figures from when we were kids and cool dollar store junk). I love mood rings and was absolutely thrilled. However, the mood ring he purchased did not tell him what each color meant. I drew him a key on a piece of scrap paper and he loved it so much that he asked for me to frame it for me. So I made him this shadow box. The original ring he purchased was too big so that ring also went in the shadow box after we went and found a smaller one :-)
I put a piece of scrapbooking paper in the background and then, using sticker letters and tags I had in my craft box I embellished it a bit. The papers are pinned in place with mother of pearl straight pins.
Here is a close up of the original sketch (sorry for its fuzziness)
The top says "treasure: 1. accumulated wealth. 2. something of great worth. 3. irreplaceable: priceless forever"
The bottom says "love: a strong deep affection and devotion for another, unconditional and unexplained"
I wanted to color in the heart- but he said that he wanted it exactly as it was-so that is the way it stayed.
