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.

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.
