I used the Square Shrine Shadow Box to create a window of sorts. I can imagine staring out at the melting snow and budding trees. This is a Mid-Atlantic March. :)
Using Graphic 45's Fairy Dust, I cut panels for the box inside and the front wall and Mod Podge'd them on.
I used a small sponge to dab light green paint on one leafy tree, and white paint on the other. You might notice the trees are mirror images.
I trimmed the tree's lower branches and right edges in order to set it a bit to the right.
On the back of the green tree, I added a few layers of scrap chipboard to raise it off the back wall. I did the same on the back of the white tree to raise it off the green tree.
After the sheet moss and trees were installed, I added the front panel. Edges were sanded and inked with brown.
The bird was cut from the Birds On A Wire chippy and painted an orange-ish color.
Thanks for your visit today! ~Susan
