SS - Shadow Box


At Skinny Saturday there is a two week challenge to create a 'skinny shadow box'. (Skinny = artwork 3" x 5" in size). I nearly didn't attempt this challenge, but I've been busy making some skinnies today and after a little bit of fiddling I came up with this shadow box. I formed the shadow box from chipboard, dimensional tape and K & Company papers from the 'Bailey' collection.


As I was making the box, I drew inspiration from an ATC holder I had seen that had been decorated by Audrey Hernandez... I wanted to be able to change the skinny that was on display in the shadow box, so I've left the top of the box open and I can slip the skinny out through the top.


So I've kinda been addicted to making skinny collages today... it's been fun using these gorgeous ARTchix images and an assortment of other fun bits 'n bobs.

Hi Susie I'm way behind with my comments - been popping in quickly but haven't had the time to comment! These collages are just perfect - each one is just gorgeous! I love the fabric work you are doing these days - it really is becoming your signature I think!
