Paris Shadow Box with Marjolaine

Hello friends, Marjolaine here. This week I've been playing with the Paris shadow box and I'm loving how it turned out.

The box is super easy to assemble, I used Zip dry to adhere the pieces together. I used some beautiful napkins and decoupaged them onto the box. I also smeared a bit of gesso on the surface to age the box. Some of the chipboard pieces are covered with Zing embossing powder and distressed with gesso, others are colored with a grey big brush marker.

This little bouquet of flowers is one of my favorite things about this box, I just love the little "vase" they're in. (the jar is sold separately)

I used the following items from Gina's Designs:

Damsel in Distress

Kathi here today to share a new layout with you. 

I started this layout by prepping the canvas with white gesso. After the canvas dried I took the brick wall and used it has a mask. I placed it on the left side of the layout. Spreading spackling with a cake
spatula, I carefully removed the brick wall to allow it to dry. I then washed the brick wall in order to use it again on a second project.  Repeated the process on the right side of the layout using the chicken wire. On the right I only went up half way with the speckling then spaying the top half with Lindy Stamp Gang spray. Then carefully removing the stencil to wash it in order to use it again.

I then arranged the paper, distressing the edges, the paper was glued down using Mod Podge. I placed the doily under the photo mat.  I then cut a gear doily in half and tucked them into the side & the bottom of the paper. 

Of the laser chipboard, the boarder stick & some of the gears, were painted with black distress paint. The wrought iron fence & the rest of gears Black UTEE was used. On the Eiffel tower gold UTEE was used then distressed with metallic rub on. 

I placed a border stick in the middle of the Eiffel tower along with a metal Q at the top of the Eiffel tower. 

The flowers were prepped with white gesso and set aside to dry, then they were placed around the photo mat.

I placed the wrought iron fence on top of the chicken wire. Then I placed the Eiffel tower to the left side on top of the brick wall. 

The paper line has a butterfly in the pattern. I took an extra piece of the paper line & cut out the butterfly then placing the butterfly on top of the butterfly on the paper, making the illusion that the
butterfly is flying. 

A chandelier was painted with UTEE , a mixture of gold, platinum, black & bronze. I then placed the chandelier above the butterflies.
