Good morning, everyone!  I hope you had a splendid weekend…I just returned from an extended weekend myself 🙂  …and what better way to return than with a project share?  Today, I have a gorgeous shadow box created by design team member Keri Sallee to show off.  Here’s a look at her completed project:

Keri started with a Graphic45 Small Matchbox Book as her shadow box and used a variety of Deco Art paints and Texture Sand Paste to create a beautiful blue background with green textured seaweed.  She then had some fun fussy cutting images from the Graphic 45 Voyage Beneath the Sea paper collection and added them in her shadow box.  Here’s a close look at the top of the inside of the box:

You can see that Keri layered a seahorse and fish from the paper collection with a some of the Small and Medium Mixed Silver, Copper and Bronze Gear Charms.  She also blinged up the center of the top gear using an SS16 Light Colorado Flat Back Glass Rhinestone.

Here’s a close up of the bottom of the inside of the shadow box:

Keri added a silver Watch Mechanism Tibetan Charm and another Small Gear Charm near the top of this picture.  In the bottom of the shadow box, Keri added a Bronze Metal Filigree Embellishment (#553-B), more fish images from the paper collection, and some aquarium rocks.

After finishing the inside of the shadow box, Keri scattered more of the Small, Medium,and Large Gear Charms around the front edges of the box.  She also tucked in another Watch Mechanism Tibetan Charm and a binocular charm from the Steampunk Tibetan Charms Collection in the ButterBeeScraps shop.

Keri then used five Small Bronze Filigree Beads (#BD374-B) to create some feet for the box to stand on.  Finally, she added a few finishing touches using more SS16 Light Colorado Flat Back Glass Rhinestones and Liquid Glass from Deco Art.
