- unique colours and versatile collection make this line fun to work with
Hello blog friends! Today I'd like to share with you a future shadow box class. I love making shadow boxes, especially those that encase a precious photo. Here is what I came up with.
Oops, forgot to check my camera settings again. They look fine in Picasa though. Sorry for the blur...again!
Because this occasion was a western style wedding celebration, I thought adding the twine, lasso style, would be a nice touch. These are my children! The young man on the right, isn't really mine, but being the best friend of my oldest son on the left, he was over often and considered family. So after several years, it was nice to see them all together again.
There is one design in this collection that I simply had to fussy cut and roughly colour in just a bit of colour.
Beautiful paper, isn't it.
I used Fantastix and my ink pads to lightly add some colour. You can use the pen nibs I put in the photo, as well. Once I get all my Spectrum Noir, I'd use them.
So, let me show you some close ups. Hopefully they won't be too blurry.
The "My Favorite Memories" card, is a tag that can be pulled out and written on.
You can better see all the layers of these fussy cut pieces I used on the left side here.
Can you see that the purple pinstripe layer is popped up? Next is the photo with the twine lasso.
I put the year on the photo in Picasa. Love that program. Here is another view.
Well that's it for the detail shots. Now, which one do I give this to? The Groom? Or should I make one for all of my children do you think?
Thank you for stopping by to have a look. Have fun making your own shadow box!
