Sailing Takes Me Away to Where I'm Gluing

Hi everyone!

I bought this busted up shadow box on clearance at Hobby Lobby a while back:

And there is sat in my box of, "Well, One Day...Maybe" box of things to alter for years. But I decided to give it a new life once I got the Mile High Club mixed media kit.

There is SO much vintage ephemera in this kit so I decided to use pieces of it for my travel shadow box:

I also added some Dylusions mists, pink and blue - one of my favorite color combos.

For the inside, I decided to make "clouds" up top by stenciling modeling paste and using a paper towel roll as my "cloud" stamp.

Happy Monday everyone!

  4. I really like the blue and pink color combo too!

  5. That's really cool. I've always wanted to make a shadow box but I have a feeling that if I got the stuff to make it, it would just sit in my "one day maybe" closet for years. ;)

  6. Cool! I love the colours on it :)
