I have long been a fan of shadow boxes. The idea of keeping a memory on display in a beautiful way, makes home decorating even more meaningful. We were challenged this month to use a beautiful shadow box frame sent to us in conjunction with some products from Vintage Street Market. I chose to use the Dimestore Vogue collection as it fits in perfectly with my craft space.
I painted my frame with celery acrylic paint, then a light coating of antique white, and then distressed it with distress ink. I love the shabby, pale blue it turned out to be.
I used Dimestore Vogue paper as my background topped by a vintage Bingo card, doily, and then a Dimestore Vogue die cut layered with coordinating paper and vintage buttons. This project made me take a look at the things I have on hand…things I love and treasure as some have memories attached…and then incorporate them into my decor to surround myself with my favorite bits and bobs of history.
Thanks for visiting.
