Window Shadow Box by Kim and an Altered Canvas by Heidi

We have two amazing projects to share today.  First up is Kim, with an amazing home decor project!

Hi Everyone!  It's Kim here to share my newest creation, a Window Shadow Box done in a vintage shabby style.  It was tons of fun to create, and I love how it turned out.

I covered the inside of the box with a gorgeous black and white photo frame paper from Teresa Collins, and used aqua and turquoise as my accent colors. I painted the frame of the window with some distress paint in white, then sanded it back to the raw wood of the box to really make it look aged and distressed.
Here you can see inside the top of the box, and on the left side I have added one of the Gates from the small fence and gate set, which I embossed in an aged Silver tone. I placed some white, aqua and turquoise flowers in the box behind the gate and added a metal sign sentiment on top. In the middle of the window I placed some resin frames and added my initial.  To the right are some white resin cameras backed by some white doilies. In the far right corner, I placed a small clock button.
 Below, you can see a frame I have altered and added a vintage photo of myself on my 5th Birthday! I have also added the word "Dream" from the Words & Phrases 1 Set. I added some flowers and a camera charm to the top and placed 2 of the intricate doilies on the side and top of the frame. To the right of the frame is a metal camera which I altered using some Patina Guilders Paste, and added a flower to the center. I added a fun metal tap and pipe to the bottom on top of some vintage lace.

 Below, you can see the bottom right of the shadow box.  I have added a steam punk doily and a large wing from the Wings Assortment Set, which I have embossed with shabby blue and aged silver embossing powder.   I added a wooden sentiment and flowers to finish it off.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at my Window Shadow Box, and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Next up is Heidi with a gorgeous altered canvas featuring our Queen Anne's Lace chipboard shapes.

 Hello everyone, Heidi here!  Today's project is a canvas I made for Gina's Designs using the gorgeous Lace Flowers.  To start the project I used a honeycomb grid to put some texture randomly on the canvas.

I then painted the entire canvas with a light gray paint, going back to add a little mustard to the medium spots (these areas were dry within an hour or two).  I painted the lace flowers with paint and then I used some medium to give it a little depth along with some glitter.

Here is a little closer picture of the flowers.  I have them lifted off the page to give the entire canvas some depth.  The glitter is actually very fine and all over the entire canvas.  The effect is so pretty but it was hard for me to get a good photograph.
