This week I have created a little hanging shadowbox. I created this box out of chipboard and used the Sweet Summer Shape Set.
The picture inside the box is of my niece and nephew, and they are ready for the beach!
I did the crackle technique on the bucket and shovel. I painted them with gesso, then added my crackle medium. Once the medium dried I added the grey paint, which I just mixed black and white gesso together (since I didn't have grey!!). Once that dried I inked it with black distress ink around the edges. I added some twine to the handle of the shovel, which I used the technique on as well only using brown paint.
I sun, I painted with gesso then I used some some watercolor paints from Colorarte to give it a golden color. I then inked the edges of the sun with vintage photo distress ink.
I also did the crackle technique to the piece on the front of the box, Which is like a covered sand box with a shovel and bucket. I painted it with brown paint, added the crackle medium, and once that was dry I added some ivory acrylic paint. I added some pattern paper and a few flowers to the the box. This was a very quick and simple project, but its so cute!! I then added twine and some letter beads that hang from the bottom.
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!!
