Hello and Happy Mother's Day! I hope you're having a lovely one. Today, I have a shadowbox to share with you that I've created for my sweet Baby Girl.
I began by covering the front of the 7 x 7 Themed Shadowbox Baby Girl with paperclay. Before it was dry, I stamped into it here and there with a star stamp and let the whole thing dry.
After it was dry, I covered the whole thing with a coat of white paint and a coat of Mod Podge to seal it in. I then applied a coat of black paint which I wiped off with a wet rag to give the recesses a bit of a distressed look. Some inking with brown ink furthered the distress.
Some paper piecing along the clothes line...
...and some crackle on the "B" were perfect embellishments! It's sort of a monogram, as our last name starts with "B". I've also added in some ribbon, lace and a few pearls and mother-of-pearl buttons embedded into a layer of beeswax. The shimmer on the beeswax is a dusting of Perfect Pearls. LOVE!
Thanks so much for joining me today!
