DecoArt Mixed Media DT project - Shabby vintage shadowbox

Thanks for joining me and I hope you won't mind making another hop across to the DecoArt Mixed Media Design Team blog where my project will be based today. There is a full step by step tutorial and lots of photos showing how I put this one together. I thought I'd share some of the embellishments.




You will also find how I made my own 'false bottom' shadowbox which is my newest invention and one that is very flexible as it can have a shallow base and a deeper one and you can use either side depending on how you want to fill it. I have also added a colour mixing grid for the colours I used.

It would be great if you could pop over and take a look and let me know what you think.

Thanks in advance for all your support and comments.

I "popped over" Brenda and I was awed - as I always am - when I see your creative genius at work. Your shadow box is just INCREDIBLY WONDERFUL and your step by step is FANTASTIC. And how fun it was to see all the YUMMY colors you made from your DecoArt Media combinations. Boy - do those colors look SPLENDID on your shadowbox too. BEAUTIFUL project in every way. Xj.
