The fantastic selection of wood and chipboard pieces from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts is endless! I chose the Art Deco Corner Set to emboss in white and adorn the corners of the shadowbox. Next I chose to use a few of the House Jewelry Pieces and one of the birds from the Bird On A Swing Shape Set to adorn the inside of the canvas-shadow box. Again, I heat embossed these pieces in white. I added a layer of Hologram embossing powder over the house and house frame, then added a rub on sentiment to the surface of the embossed bird. I also added a metal crown to the bird and glued several purple beads to the inside of the tiny house frame. Then I glued them to the inner top so they can dangle on little strands of bling.
Next I gathered plenty of paper flowers in various sizes and colors, then painted them all in a coat of white gesso. I chose the Wooden Journey Charm for the top front of the box and painted it in gesso as well. After all was dry, I started painting the word charm, each flower and the canvas (inside and out) with Shimmerz watercolor paints in piggy pink, blue lagoon and pugnacious purple. Then I glued everything in place and added a bit of twine in a bow to the side. I really like how the Journey charm turned out. It took the Shimmerz paints so beautifully.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you've enjoyed my project and found a bit of inspiration!
