Sweet Little Baby of Mine ~ Shadow Box

Sweet Little Baby Shadow Box

Baby Close Up

Last night, I fin­ished my first ful­ly con­struct­ed shad­ow box. The shad­ow box, mini can­vas and baby are all con­struct­ed of plas­ter, then paint­ed with acrylic paint and aged with an acrylic glaze. The inside of the shad­ow box is accent­ed with vin­tage cro­cheted doilies, ledger paper from the ear­ly 1900’s, flocked flow­ers, tulle trim, and a vin­tage per­fume bot­tle per­fect­ly sized to hold baby’s first curl.

The space just below the baby can be per­son­al­ized with a child’s name if desired. The name will be typed onto vin­tage note­book paper that has been per­fect­ly aged using my vin­tage Under­wood type­writer.

The vin­tage per­fume bot­tle is not attached to the shad­ow box. It sits sweet­ly inside just wait­ing to hold baby’s first curl and there is still space left to place oth­er trea­sured memen­tos, next to the bot­tle.
