Hi Roadies! It's Jocelyn on the blog today, and and I'm sharing a home decor project. When I saw the House Shadow Box, I knew I wanted to create a personalized project that worked for all seasons.
I started by painting the house in aqua. Once the paint was dry, I dry-brushed white to give the house a more rustic look. Next, I cut new Crate Paper patterned papers for each square. On the roof, I dry-brushed the edges of the paper with white paint.
I clustered the Velvet Pleat, Felt Flower, Kraft Butterfly, and Wood Stitch Heart. On the butterfly, I added glitter to the edges and separated the Mini Silver Clothespin to use half as the butterfly's body. For the Heart Lock Charm, I gilded it in silver paint. To the edge of the roof, I added the awesome Mini Pom Pom trim--I love how it reminds me of icicles.
For the top-left square, I created a shaker element using the Hexagon Chipboard. To make this shaker:
1) (Optional) Paint all of the edges of the chipboard with white gloss paint.
2) Stack and adhere two of the hexagon rings on the base.
3) Add a mix of sequins.
4) Trim a piece of acetate to fit to the edge of the hexagon ring. Adhere the acetate to the stacked rings.
5) Adhere the final hexagon ring over the acetate.
The shaker reminds me a little of window. In the box, I also added a Mini Canvas Tag and the Rocking Horse Charm.
In the upper-right box, I printed a picture of our house from last fall. Under the photo, I twisted a piece of Shine Gold Cording. For the Tree Bottle Brush, I used a re-inker to dye the tree yellow. I think I need to dye these trees in a rainbow of colors!
In the bottom-left corner, I painted the Welcome Home Chipboard house and glittered over the top. For the roof, I trimmed a piece of patterned paper and added the Gold Heart Charm Tag. The Resin Deer is one of my favorite Maya Road products, and I knew I wanted to include one in the shadow box.
For the final square, I layered several elements and added a sticker from the same patterned paper collection. Under the Felt Rose, I added our monogram ("O") and a Granny's Wood Doily.
I made this project for our home, but they would be fun to make for holiday presents or as a new-home gift.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
