Happy Thursday everyone! Today we have two designers up with some Christmas themed projects. First up is Nancy with her Kitty Cat Shadowbox.
Hi Everyone, Nancy here! Today I'm sharing another of my favorite pieces, our house shadow box. I've decorated this one especially for one of my kitty loving friends as a Christmas gift.
After assembling the shadowbox, I painted it with gesso and applied Tim Holtz tissue tape in music note pattern to the edges. The inside of the niches, and the outside of the shadow box were papered with a printable digital paper in a vintage Christmas pattern.
I filled the box mainly with fussy cut digital images that I found on Pinterest, or purchased on Etsy, and handmade little books which I created from free digital files. The smaller of our layered chipboard fireplaces fits perfectly in the larger square of the box, and I thought it added a cozy feel.
The lamppost at the upper right is also by Gina's Designs, and is available in the store as a larger piece than shown here. I had requested that this smaller version be custom cut for me. The shadow box was cut at a depth of 1 1/2 inches by request. The standard depth is 2 inches, but you can request it be cut to fit your needs as I did.
