I did a little experimenting in my craft room on my day off Monday. I've been seeing a lot of shadow box projects and wanted to try them. My biggest problem was that I was limited to what I had on hand. I didn't want to have to go out and buy any new supplies. I started by coming up with a design in Cricut design space. Next step was to cut out the design in white cardstock. Then I put it all together in a cheap Dollar Tree frame, layered in some battery operated lights and backed it with some blue cardstock. It's far from perfect, there are plenty of flaws, but this was an experiment to see what worked and what didn't. Now I see where I need to make some changes and adjustments for the next time I make this. Without further ado here is my project
Here it is with the lights on.
Let's zoom in a Little Closer
One final picture with a bit of an explanation on where I need to make improvements.
The layer behind the deer had too much going on in the center. It makes it hard to see the antlers on the one deer. Secondly look closely at the deer. Do you see the dog hair hanging off of it? If this was going to be a gift I would definitely have to make sure not to trap any Gibbs hair in the final product.
Well that wraps up 2020. I'll see you all next year.
Wow, I am totally stunned! This is your fanciest, most complex, most gorgeous craft EVER!!! I think one would not see the dog hair unless they are looking for it. After all that work, you should not take it apart just for one little hair.
I'm so glad you did it, and that you didn't have to buy new materials. It looks elegant, and I agree it would be even better if the deer stood out more. A great use of a day off!
A very nice project and you succeeded very well!
Happy neu year, Ann!
Wow Ann, this is very impressive. It's stunning and with background lights (that looks like stars by the way) ...it's spectacular!!
It's beautiful Ann!!! And how nice of Gibbs to lend a hand.
still laughing while typing. i find captured dog hairs in, on and under everything.. i really like this. it is beautiful without the lights on and with the lights even better. i do love lighted anything, i want something for one wall but can't make myself buy it. it it 79 dollars. just to hang on a wall. wild clapping for your newest project
That is absolutely gorgeous Ann! How nice of Gibbs to add a special touch lol. All the best to you and your family in the coming year. Hugs!
Nifty and beautiful...
Oooh, I REALLY like this! I would love one of these. Are you making them to sell?? If we could rig it up with battery operated lights, it would be perfect!
I love this....sure would be nice to hang on the wall at Christmas.
I hope you have a Happy New Year!
You are a crafting genius, my dear. Hands down!!! I can't wait to see what you'll craft in the new year. Happy New Year, my friend!! ~Andrea xoxo
