{ Summer Shadow *BOX* }

1:39 AM

I am back (well, not exactly!) with another shadow box post! :)
This is a shadow box I made for one of my close friends (soul sisters) as something
to remember me by! 
Also, the frame I used for the box is an old old tray I kept saving up since I knew some day, in not-so-near future, I would be using it for a project *pat on the back kid*

Supplies:- Tray-Altered; Background-blue and white acrylic paints; Paper-white, red, mustard, brown and beige paper scraps; Embellishments- twig(mother nature!), pearls, white and silver glitter, mulberry flowers, yellow moss; Tools- butterfly punch(Martha Stewart), damask stencil, scissors(frey for grass);

 This was inspired by The Mirror Crack'd June Challenge to create a shadow box.

I chose a lot of bright summer-y colours to match our outfits from the photograph *wink*

I used a twig to hold the "hoardings" I created and connected them with chain-links with hand-doodled notes on each. I wanted to add a bit of "nature" in the layout and I guess I went over-board with the butterflies. But, I guess you can't have enough of those right?

And who doesn't like the glitter clouds? 
This is my all-time-favourite messy use and abuse of glitter! *happy dancing*

For the background I painted the tray with blue and white paint and heat-embossed the damask pattern using a stamp and white embossing powder. And of course clustered a LOTT of butterflies and mulberry flowers!

The project was inspired by Anything but a Card Challenge #48
and Frosted Designs Friday Challenge.

Now a little on personal end,
Okay so I have been super busy with my studies but I proudly announce to you my completion of the fourth-year in architecture school! I made it! (Okay yeah I need to chill, one more year to go! *sigh*)
So I have a month's break before the my training period starts so I am investing that time into building myself a website (with a domain name and everything *LOL*)

I have also been freelancing as a graphic designer, I know! Too much has been going on, and it made sense to finally enter the ETSY world now.
Check out my digital store *here*

Hopefully will be back soon with a few more updates!
--- Happy Crafting! ---
