Altered Maya Road House Shadow Box

Some of you  might have seen this post ear­lier in the week and won­dered what in the world is she doing… well I’ve always said I’m not a techy kinda girl. I had the wrong post date so it posted before I had the blog post fin­ished. This is one of the classes I taught at Crop & Cre­ate. It has so many tech­niques and ideas that can trans­fer on to other dif­fer­ent projects.

Altered House Shadow Box Roof

The decoupaged Pink Paislee Cof­fee Fil­ters on the roof can eas­ily be placed onto a can­vas,  mini album, paper mache box, wooden plaque and lots of other items. The Pink Paislee Mask and Gesso Tech­nique can be placed on the projects I just listed as well as tags. And oh good­ness you can do so many cute things with the Maya Road Skinny Wood Spools, Twine Cord­ing and Fab­ric Tapes. You can cre­ate cute Fab­ric Flags using any of the Maya Road Trin­ket Pins as the flags pole.

The Maya Road Barn Red Ging­ham trim can be placed on any project and it will look adorable. This trim makes the cutest bows. You can make adorable orna­ments using the Maya Road Ornate Chip­board Tags. These can be inked, misted, painted, glit­tered and embossed using Tex­ture Fades. And every­thing looks great with but­ton and rhine­stone accents.

Doo­dle­bug Design has some really cute ones and in all kinds of awe­some col­ors. Their rhine­stones are the best as they sparkle beautifully.

The Maya Road After­noon Tea Milk Blos­soms are great to mist and accent any project. FYI… Maya Mists can be heat set. Did you know this? The Maya Road Mini Wood But­ter­flies are per­fect to paint, ink, mist and heat emboss. They are the per­fect size for all projects.  As you can imag­ine these are super popular.

Maya Road Trin­ket Pins are the sim­plest embell­ish­ment to use on your projects. They accent the small­est of space per­fectly. And any project accented with one of the Maya Road Metal Dress Form Clips is stylin. The Dress Form Clips are my favorite design. The Kraft Mini Jot­ter Tags look great alone or clus­tered together with sev­eral dif­fer­ent designs.

The Jenni Bowlin Kraft Feath­ers are super fun to alter. I painted and cut mine. And the Maya Road Vin­tage Mem­ory Glass Vials are so fun to fill with Doo­dle­bug Design Lily While Sugar Coat­ing Glit­ter and accent with Twine Cord­ing. The Glass Vials can be filled with any­thing from glit­ter, sand, small shells, a child’s lock of hair, col­ored sprin­kles etc. Accent­ing shadow boxes with these is a must.

So there you have it a load of inspi­ra­tion and ideas for you to start your own shadow box project. I listed all the prod­ucts I used by man­u­fac­turer so you can visit their web­sites. I fig­ured it would be much eas­ier for you this way.
