Today's project is a Kaisercraft Shadow Box, but I thought lets try something a little different. What can I do that is going to make this pop? so I made it up, and then sat and looked at it for a month. It just wasn't happening, yes I could cover it with paper, yes I could make the shadow boxes have something inside them, but then after working on a recipe book, I thought, why don't I make a shelf full of mini books.
But then I was hunting through my room, collecting bits and pieces, and I found this earring I purchased for the $2.00 shop, and then I put it up against the box and then I was off, goodbye mini books hello top shelf.
The Kaisercraft Shadow Box Unit available from Artfull Crafts
There is black paper inside of the unit, I tried just spraying it, but it wasn't dark enough, and I wasn't painting it this time. After I put the paper inside, I sprayed with black glimmer mist to give a distressed sort of look.
The butterfly added a touch of whimsy and of course a key.
The top started off with the big black earring at the back, then i built it up from there.
This ended up being hard to photograph as a whole piece, but I think you get the idea.
The paper is a Kaisercraft 75 cents . The sides were also covered, and then sprayed and distressed.
Kaisercraft flowers were added to give some more dimension to the project.
What is going inside the shelves? I have no idea, but something will find its way in to here.
