adorable, new shadow box!!!

how fun this little shadow box project was!!!! i printed my original art out in miniature, cut it out and added it to this original mixed media shadow box!!



after sorting thru my vintage button box, i added the little metal buttons for the flower centers and a copper wire and ceramic bead hanger. i personally signed the title and my name on the back, sealed it for protection and listed it in my etsy shop!!


i think this piece would make a very touching wedding or anniversary gift for a young couple. the leaves read love, home and family and the path to the house reads "happy journey together". i listed it as a 5" x 7" print in my etsy shop but the original is also available by e-mail request.

off to comfort presley as he's having a tough night of stumbling and disorientation. he just needs to sit on my warm lap while i sip my hot tea.

take care!

Some wonderful posts, as of late. Sorry to be such a sporadic reader of your blog! I do come back, despite the randomness of it all.

That is adorable. I have a shadow box waiting to be worked on. I'm to intimidated to even begin. Must get over that.

Anyway, Happy Valentines Day Julie! I hope you have a superb day with lots of chocolate involved!
