I hope everyone is enjoying the extra long weekend - I only have one more week left of my summer break. This time next week I will be back at school, trying to fit all my crafting in when I can.
It's time for a new challenge over at Make My Monday and this week it is my turn to choose the theme. As you can see from my post title I chose 'ANYTHING BUT A CARD'.
This is a favourite theme of mine as I love making home decor projects and I have been wanting to show you this one for a while. So, here's what I made for my DT inspiration ...
After much research on the subject - here's my version of a decorated shadow box. I chose the cream and pink theme to give a 'shabby' look to the project. The whole thing is made from scraps of paper from my stash, together with lots of little items from my craft box, including a baby domino, a little penny farthing charm, a miniature clothes peg, a dice, a mini wooden cotton bobbin, a mini clock charm and loads of tiny little punched butterflies. The letter 'B' in the largest section is to represent my surname (Brown) and I also added the date in one of the sections too.
Here's a closer look at some of my favourite sections ...
The top section
I love the little bottle of beads
I covered the little cotton bobbin with some lace
I must admit this took a while to finish - but I am thrilled with the outcome and it now sits proudly on my display cabinet. I am hoping to make these to order in the future, so watch this space.
I hope this has inspired you to have a go at something other than a card - I will be back on Wednesday with a little midweek motivation.
Hugz, Jan xx
