Here is part of my package that I sent to Muria.

She had listed that she liked a shadowbox design that had a layered design.  I also saw that she likes to read Jane Austen, so I designed her a Pride and Prejudice shadowbox.  I tried to layer the pictures so that it gave a 3D effect from a 2D image.  Mr Darcy is layered once and Elizabeth Bennet is layered twice.

Crafts make us feel rooted, give us a sense of belonging and connect us with our history.  Our ancestors used to create these crafts out of necessity, and now we do them for fun... to express ourselves.
 ~ Phyllis George

So why buy what you can craft?  Smiley

It looks really great!  I have to find a good spot to put it, probably above my sewing machine. The sun's just starting to come up here, but it does look like it should be pretty clear (not overcast like the last week), so I should be able to get some pictures taken today.  Smiley

I don't know if that's really how you layer things - it's just what my mind conceived Smiley    It has cardboard between the layers to keep them separated.

That is how they do it "professionally", like the layered pictures u can buy from stores except they don't put cardboard between the layers, they use small thin pieces of Styrofoam.

Great job btw! Grin

I received last week from CJKJ, but the weather's been awful for picture taking.  Fortunately, it was actually sunny today (really cold, but sunny).  So...


I received a really neat Pride and Prejudice shadowbox, four barrettes with buttons, a star ornament for my tree, a butterfly pendant, and an awesome (and already put to use) pincushion/thread catcher!  She even put a piece of boning in the thread catcher so I don't have to hold it open!  It's great, and I love it!!!
Here's a few other pictures (since I wasn't sure what would turn out when it ended up on the screen):
 



Thanks so much!  I'm trying to get together an equally wonderful package for you!  I hope you like what I'm making for you!

I have posted to tazzel. Now comes the hard and unnerving wait to see if everything gets there...  Shocked
