This is my first posting in the paper board!! How exciting!!

I just wanted to share a shadowbox I did for my partner in the 13 days of Halloween Swap.
I cut out the trees freehanded, the ghosts, and the tombstones. I also handwrote/drew/outlined everything too.


I did follow directions from a magazine, it used lots of fancy Scrapbook papers, stamps, cutouts, etc., which I did not have. So I improvised and used Hobby Lobby papers, Sharpies, Highlighters, etc:
This is a side view of the 'card' before I put it in the Shadowbox Frame:


And here is a closeup/detail:


Here is the magazine 'inspiration' page:


I LOVED making it!

It turned out brilliantly! I prefer yours to the original, it has far more character Smiley
