I finished two mixed media shadowboxes this week. The one on top is small...5.5"X 6". I learned this wonderful technique for making the frame at a class given by Julie Haymaker Thompson. I took her concept changed it up quite a bit. The floral embellishments were made with paper flowers, vintage book pages, buttons and music sheets. I've added it to my Artfire shop.. what the heck. I'll see what happens.
The one below is the second in a series of 5 that I am making for my studio. This one is 12X12. The concept of using vintage hardware as the main focus was Julie's idea, but it was so me!!! I made a few changes, and added the floral embellishments etc. I was so happy with the results I had to do a whole set of them. I've got keys and clock faces and tape measures for the rest. You'll see it hanging in the studio in a couple of weeks for the Where Bloggers Create party.
