Hello Crafty People,

I am Manasa Priya, back on Connect4Sale blog with a Miniature Shadow Box Scene ” Our Favourite Spot ”

So to make this shadow box, I took a 12/12 Prima Cards to know and made a 6″ Square Shadow box. That forms the base of my scene.

Now using some chipboard I made a shelf like thing and lined it up with rhinestones string. Then, added this cute little alarm clock, the cactus miniature and a heart bead. Connect4Sale has an awesome and choicely picked range of miniatures, beads, metal findings etc..

Now, to make a vase like thing.. I used a long metal bead.. Base I created using a wooden button and on top I used Icraft Cherry pollens that I got from Connect4sale and made it into a fancy decor like thing.

Now I added a colored MDF sofa and some crushed glass to fill in the ground.

To finish it off, I used space to create a little overhead and added the sentiment.

Once, the shadow box is done, I sealed it up with an acetate sheet and added the clay filigree created with Prima moulds over the edges.

I hope you like this project of mine.
Until next time..
