This project is a Shadowbox I created for my sister and BIL's 27th
Anniversary. They have been through a lot recently, and I wanted to make
something special for them.
I began by "fussy cutting" along the damask
shapes to create a "frame" for their photo. I also fussy cut from
another sheet of the same patterned paper, along the damask patterns
from the top to bottom of the sheet. I then cut them further to fit
around the framed area. Next, I took a piece of lace and hand pleated
it, using Glossy Accents to secure each pleat! After creating the
pleated lace, I attached it around the cut-out frame using the Glossy
Accents, then attached a strand of pearls over the "seam" of the pleated
lace.Then I placed the picture of my sister and BIL behind all this
and secured with adhesive.
The Bravissimo I used was three separate pieces. The "Happy Anniversary"
used on the top of the page is actually a "center" sentiment piece. In
the lower right corner I took a Bravissimo semi-finished teal rosette,
and used a sentiment center "It's Your Day" on top of that. To beef the
rosette up, I attached some box-pleat ribbon around the bottom of the
Near the top of the page, on either side of the frame, I
placed the dates of their marriage and the date of their anniversary
using MM Paper Reverie silver letters, on top of two Spellbinders
cut-outs. At the bottom of the frame I attached a TH metal flower and
pearl bangle. I added two Anna Griffin butterflies and added some
stickles, along with MM Paper Reverie Noir butterflies and some Prima Pearls! After I was
completely finished, I enclosed the layout in a shadowbox frame, and
called it done!!
Everything used was from either OMC or CC, except for the following:
shadowbox, TH Pearl Bauble, Anna Griffin Butterfly(2), misc. lace and
pearl strand for "frame" (stash), Spellbinders die, Glossy Accents
adhesive, and stickles-Crystal.
