Leaves Shadowbox

Hi friends! Happy Saturday – I hope you’re doing something fun this weekend! You know where I am… in my favorite place fairly close to my favorite guy! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Ally’s Angels and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #62! Our challenges are always Anything Goes, so come on over and play! I created a shadowbox using leaves stickers for glassware which I adhered to layers of acetate. My inspiration came from a botanical multi-layer project I saw in the Brother CanvasWorkspace Project Collection which had an assortment of leaves cut from vinyl.

I created the shadowbox from CutCardStock Basis 110# White cardstock and adhered a brick-look panel cut from The Paper Studio Entirely Textures 2 paper pad to the back. I adhered leaves stickers to three acetate panels which I adhered to the inside of the shadowbox on top of each other and separated by double-sided adhesive foam strips.

I then added two frames cut from CutCardStock Shadow Gray cardstock and green glitter cardstock (from the American Crafts American Crafts Christmas Print 6×6 Cardstock Pad) which I adhered together and placed on double-sided adhesive foam strips. The finishing touch was adding a sentiment from Taylored Expressions Simple Strips in Reverse – Everyday Occasions.

And one more peek… I really love how this turned out! These leaves have such a realistic look to them! And they were a surprise find at a Dollar Tree store that I visited while our cat, Loki, was at the vet getting a lion shave!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
