My first shadowbox

TGIF! And today is also the last day of our La-la land crafts release and I have made my first (but not my last for sure) shadowbox. Today I am showcasing the Christmas Shadow Box along with Christmas Ornament Marcithe Pretty Poinsettia dieOpen Leaf flourish die and the Heart snowflake dies.

I have coated the shadowbox with some glazes I had laying around, they have a slight metallic sheen to them and then covered the hills with some chunky type of mica glitter for some texture. I also suspended my snowflakes with some wire glued to the back and then wrapped around a popsicle stick and suspended from the top of the inside of the shadowbox. This way they move and add a little dimension to the project. This will be so cute at my desk come Christmas time!
