A Hint of Spring

Hello creative friends!  I'm over on the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts blog, sharing a fun shadow box that hints of the changing season.

I used the Square Shrine Shadow Box to create a window of sorts.  I can imagine staring out at the melting snow and budding trees.  This is a Mid-Atlantic March. :)


Using Graphic 45's Fairy Dust, I cut panels for the box inside and the front wall and Mod Podge'd them on.




I used a small sponge to dab light green paint on one leafy tree, and white paint on the other.  You might notice the trees are mirror images.


I trimmed the tree's lower branches and right edges in order to set it a bit to the right.


On the back of the green tree, I added a few layers of scrap chipboard to raise it off the back wall.  I did the same on the back of the white tree to raise it off the green tree.


After the sheet moss and trees were installed, I added the front panel.  Edges were sanded and inked with brown.


The bird was cut from the Birds On A Wire chippy and painted an orange-ish color.



Thanks for your visit today!  ~Susan
