'His Collection' Shadow Box

Hello crafty friends!  Today on the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts blog I have a masculine-themed shadow box to share with you!  I used the 3 Story House and packed it to the rafters with bits and pieces.

Since I suspected the items would be heavy, I glued the pieces together and reinforced all the joints with linen hinging tape.

I gesso'd the box with black, then decided to use paper anyway.

I don't have in-progress photos of the papering, but there wasn't anything unique about it.  I measured, adhered with Mod Podge, and allowed to dry. I sanded the edges and used watered-down black acrylic paint to dirty up the edges and sides.

I finished the interior edges with black Dresden trim.

The items are attached with E-6000 or other heavy duty glue.

Thanks for your visit today!  I hope we give you a lot of inspiration here on the blog!
