Check it! Isn’t this AWESOME? I love the color and finish of this project!
Chrissy explains: ” My vision was to keep this project true to my personality, style and character. I’m funky, fun and quirky and this shadowbox is definitely all of those things.
I usually stain wood projects so this time I painted it with gesso and applied Tim Holtz
crackle paint here and there to add texture. Once the crackle paint dried, I rubbed some distress ink into the cracks.”
“The square bird and girl images were cut from the acetate sheet used to store clear stamps. (I thank the marvelous Miss Amy Wing for that bit of inspirational genius)! I used ephemera that came with the Knick Knack Paddy Whack Curio kit as well as some Hot Pink punchinella and numerous pieces from the Pink Parts, Green Envy and It’s All Gravy,Baby Brown mixed media color kits.
I used papers from Sassafras Lass, Origami papers from the Moshi Moshi kit and a magazine page to which I applied a light layer of gesso so just the colors of the page peek through.”
“My finishing touches are the fancy-schmancy corners by Tim Holtz and that WONDERFUL treasure of a drawer knob! I love that li’l touch! And no curio is complete without a rusty key. I wrapped some hemp twine around it tightly and let go of it. It loosened up and when I liked how it looked, I hot glued that bad boy.”
This is a great project Chrissy! I have my own curio kit just sitting there all lonely right now… I think I’m… OFF TO THE SCRAP DESK (wooshy flying noise).
