Labor of Love
For my last month as a designer on the Splitcoast Creative Crew, I decided to really go all out. I had bookmarked this really awesome shadow box by Nancy Riley ages ago, but never thought I'd have the patience or skill to make one of my own. Well...one day I was at the craft store browsing the frames and I saw this one. It was on sale for around $3.50, so I figured if I got it and couldn't do it, no real harm. :) The challenge was to use 3 colors from the Pocketful of Posies paper, so I picked Early Espresso, Poppy Parade, and So Saffron. It took a big of figuring out, but I sat down and sketched out ideas for each of my squares and then went to work. By the end, I was having so much fun that I hated to see it complete. So...I now have another frame, a larger frame, in my room waiting. :)
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
