Scrap FX Shadow Box

Oh Boy, have I been having a bit of Fun!!!!

 A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of ScrapFX's new shadow box kits, and my mind just went nuts with ideas! (Looks like I may have to get some more of these little beauties!!!) I did not narrow down what I wanted to do with it until this weekend when I really started having a play.

The kit comes with all the chipboard pieces you need to form the box. They fit together easily so creating is a breeze.

 As you can see I went with the bird theme, I was inspired by the awesome bird cages that are also new to the ScrapFX range.

 Used Mica paints on the chipboard pieces and dimensional Magic to add some shine to the birds.

I have been playing around with these paper feathers for a while and after refining my clumsy technique, I love the texture they can add to things. I made these ones out of an old hymn book, I loved the fine paper that curled up as I dried the mists.

Used some old story book paper as the background loved the illustrations!!! Just continued layering to get some depth and texture.

The tag is also Scrap FX, with the lazer cut out I just had to use it!!!

There you have it, that is what I have been up to. If you can get your hands on one of these kits don't be scared, they are so much fun to put together and the possibilities are endless!
Yes Gotta' get me some more! (have I said this already) Oh, and they do come in 2 sizes, this is the large one, they come with a little hanger thingy so you can position them either way! Did I say Awesomenessss!!!

Have a great week!!!


  1. Just fantastic....great colour scheme [one of my fave's] & LOVE the feather...it looks like fun:):))

  2. Love what you did with the shadow box Michelle. The colors are gorgeous and the feather beautiful. I've got one of these too and can hardly wait to get going on something with it!
