Merry and Bright

This shad­ow box is cre­at­ed from plas­ter then paint­ed and glazed with an antique wash to give it that per­fect aged look. It mea­sures approx­i­mate­ly 5.5″ W x 7″ H x 1″ D. The out­side edge of the shad­ow box is wrapped with vin­tage lace, red seam bind­ing and accent­ed with two vin­tage Christ­mas picks.

The back­ground of the shad­ow box show­cas­es hand cut words “Mer­ry and Bright” from vin­tage sheet music from the ear­ly 1920’s and a glit­tery snowflake with an iri­des­cent rhine­stone cen­ter.

I cre­at­ed the doll from plas­ter using a mold from a vin­tage doll in my col­lec­tion. She is hand paint­ed with acrylic paint and giv­en an antique wash. The dolls dress is cre­at­ed from antique doilies and she wears a crown made from a vin­tage book page sprin­kled with glit­ter and Plat­inum Stick­les.

In her hands, she holds two small bot­tle brush trees accent­ed with cream seed beads and red and white twine.

This one-of-a-kind hand­made shad­ow box is ready for dis­play among your hol­i­day dec­o­ra­tions while rest­ing on an easel. Please note the easel is not includ­ed. If you are inter­est­ed in pur­chas­ing this piece or view­ing oth­er items I have for sale please vis­it my Etsy shop.
