Last Friday I was featured on the PaperArtsy blog with a shadowbox.
The topic (#10) was Paperdolls and as soon as I saw this I had this vision of a paper doll sitting on a flower. So here goes :
This box was in my stash for years. It is a wooden box with a glass window from Ikea. I have no idea why i bought it. lol I started with taking off the back and obscuring the glass which was not removable. I got round that by putting a piece of paper inside the box and a piece of grey board on the outside.
I made a paper insert for my box because it was easier to use the stencil and model paste like this. When I was finished with it, it just slid into the box.
I also stencilled on the outside.
I gelli printed some paper to stamp my flowers on. I used an Ikea coaster and some bottle tops to add texture into the paint.
After stamping, I cut them all out. I did stamp more in the end...
I used Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic mixed with glazing fluid to add interest around the stencilling.
To get rid of the ugly edge at the front (which was the back) I glued sari ribbon along it.
And this is the finished project !
Love how it came out, loved making it....
I have used stamps and stencil by Kay Carley
