“Save the Date” Shadow Box by Nicole

Hello everyone 😃
Nicole has altered a Shadowbox for you. Isn’t it beautiful, 😍 and romantic? How she made it and what Nicole used for it you can see at the following step by step instruction.

The Shadowbox from Snipart in the size 30x30cm got a coat of white Gesso. And since Nicole’s Shadowbox should get a romantic vintage style she decided to use the paper “Ceremony” from Stamperia.

 

 

Now it was time for fussy cutting. She cut different elements out of the paper, which later serve as embellishments.

 

 

Nicole then sprayed simple white roses with the Lindy’s spray “Bodacious Blush” to match the colours to the project.

 

 

With the “White Crackle Paste” from Finnair a bit more structure was created on the frame.

 

 

Many projects are not completely in your head right from the start. This also applies to Nicole. One idea came after the other. The Chipboard corners from SnipArt, some tulle and ribbon, the previously cut out paper embellishments and a few sheets of punched out leaves  which she sprayed with Lindy’s “Ponderosa Pines Olive“. And of course glitter! Glitter simply always goes.

 

 

The frame was Nicole, only with white gesso and crackle paste, just too colorless. A little “Rose Gold” wax changed that quickly. On the one hand, the frame now has a nice, delicate color and on the other hand, the structure comes out much better.
And this is the finished project. 😊 I think Nicole has created a fantastically beautiful, romantic shadowbox with relatively few products.

Here is a little gallery for you:

I am happy if you like Nicole’s project as much as I do and we could inspire you again. Dear Nicole, thank you so much for this beautiful 😍inspiration.

See you next time 😊
