Doing something diffrent Silhoutte Challange

One of these days I will start posting more than just the Silhouette challenge but until summer is over I am too busy playing with my kidlets. On a side note not saving money much these days.I wanted to make a cute door hanging for my daughter's door to her room and thought this Shadow box from the Silhouette's online store would work out great. I wanted soft fun colors, and I wanted the pictures in sepia tone, since she had on some pretty vivid colors that clashed with the other pictures, The brown and the pink really worked out well I thought. Her name with the swirls were printed then cut on the Silhouette and then I painted on Glitter Glue (stickels) and then embellished the top with rolled flowers (see below for the link)

I have been working on this project for a month and a half and finally got it done, and I love the way it turned out. the Shadow box was fun to make, made me think about the project and I always enjoy getting my mind focused on a paper craft project.

The assembling of the shadow box took attention to detail, I had to watch Lori Whitlock's video a couple times to figure out how to make this (I recommend watching it once before you purchase the file and once after, and then have it up as a reference when you are assembling the shadow box.) You will be glad you got the file and all the fun ideas you can come up with, super fun I must say!
