Shadowbox Fun

Hi everyone,

Today I'm showing you a shadowbox that I did for my daughter's room. It turned out really well, much better than I had anticipated.

I had bought the shadowbox at Pottery Barn about six years ago and didn't know what to do with it until finally I sat down and just started playing around. The first thing I did was paint it as it was originally white. I used the Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paints and used her colour chart to get the colour I wanted. I'm so happy with the result.

I'm finally starting to get some projects done that have been laying around for some time and in the next few days I'll be posting those as well.

Now, it's back to our regularly scheduled laundry ...

Happy crafting!

Hi everyone,

I did this canvas for my daughter's room and it actually turned out really well. Now only if I could take pictures properly! I really need to work on that!

This was pretty easy to make. I painted a 12 x 12 canvas and then put a piece of 12 x 12 paper on top and then embellished. It adds such a nice element to my daughter's newly decorated room.

Busy day today so I'll keep this short. Have a great day everyone and Forza Italia!

I'm Back!

Hi everyone,

I'm sorry I haven't been blogging but life has gotten in the way of living and also I haven't had a lot of creative mojo lately. I think between hockey playoffs (yay Hawks!), getting a new dog, and dealing with all the day-to-day stuff that is going on, I didn't have a lot of energy left (or motivation, for that matter) to create.

Anyway, I'm back now, and hopefully will post a little more regularly. Here's a card I did a while ago (sorry for the bad photo).


Cardstock: Bazzill

Paper: Basic Grey

Stamp: Inkadinkado

Other: Glimmer Mist, Flowers by Prima, crystals, ribbon

Happy crafting!
