Wow, it has been a LONG while since I have posted on here and boy do I miss it! I have been on a major shadowbox kick lately and these are 3 of my favorites.

This gnome is 9"x9". The statue was found at a vintage store for $4. I ripped apart and reassembled the photo on the background and secured each piece with color coordinating brads. I hot glued the moss and then needle felted the 3 acorns.


This one is 5"x5". I embossed the tree image on a blue paper that I inked after I tore it apart. The background was made using vintage book pages. The small glass birds are from a woman who my mom randomly met. Lucky for me, her and her husband bought an old glass studio and I have been having a field day with their findings!


This one is also 5"x5". I absolutely adore glitter and the Jersey shore(I am a Jersey girl). The paper is Graphic 45 and the shells are from a beach in Florida. Very simple, but definitely my favorite.


Thanks for taking the time to look and I hope you like them! :-)

Awesome!!! While we were doing reno on our house I found some old stuff (1850's-1890's) that they left in the walls and I wanted to do shadow boxes to display my cool finds. Thanks for inspiration that it likely can be done Smiley
