I'm outta me box, Yup into the ole shadow box!
Not only will I have a offering for TheHumbleArts.com
BUT I will have TWO offerings !!! yea!!!!
*Please let me say here I am still doing the ole catch up,
seems every time I get caught up I turn around and darn there's my big ole behind again,
I have gotten so far behind in mailing you my friends and feel so bad about it,
but I love each of you and am determined to email you all back personally..
The Lord is blessing me with new idea's and helping me step out of my box PTL.
It is 3-dimensional and totally hand created... Lots of Faux Glitter and snow.
It is hard for me to take a picture with the top of the shadow boxed closed, I kept getting glass reflections.. Does any one have any idea's how to take a good picture with no reflections??
I took and smoothed the wood to a new baby's bottom smoothness.
I just love how this sweet Antique Ivory Victorian Cottage Style Shadow Box has turned out. It is 3-dimensional and totally hand created... Lots of Vintage Paper, Vintage Photos printed on cloth. Artists Pencils, Faux Glitter and Snow and so much more .
Here is a picture I feel in love with years ago, I bought it at JoaAnn's SO simple yet so Whimsical, Living in Florida many a hot summer days I will stare at this picture as it hangs right above my sewing table..
1 st: Will First he always makes me smile
4 th: he makes see him through the eyes of a child,
I wanted to create a Whimsical Cottage Style Shadow Box , That makes every one feel the same way as the Folk Art Whimsy picture does..
Here in the beginnings Whimsical Cottage Style Shadow Box,is solid wood, measurements are 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 and 1 1/2 inches deep...I took and smoothed the wood to feel like a apple in smoothness...
Paintings...using Antique Cream Drying... applying Aquamarine ..Drying... Then distressing giving such a nice patina of age to the Whimsical Cottage Style Shadow Box... It is 3-dimensional and totally hand created... Lots of Vintage fabric, Vintage Photos from 1950's cards.. Artists Pencils, Faux Glitter and Snow and so much more . Using real Czech Glass beads on the tress adds whimsy sparkle. Sealant has been applied to protect the..Whimsical Cottage Style Shadow Box
Using real Czech Glass beads on the trees adds great sparkle.

Vintage 1940's yo yo's these yo yo's are truly vintage..My sister in-law gave these to me, Her Mother and her Grandmother made these yo yo's in 1940's, Her Mother and her Grandmother would quilt using these yo yo's. Oh it is like a bag of gold, I love the teeny tiny stitches, and the old fabric is wonderful, I wished I could make my sister in-law some thing using these yo yo's she would love it.. these yo yo's were made 16 years before my hubby was even born! I embellished this Apron starting by adding lace , I took some of the vintage yo yo's and hand sewed them to area's on the apron..Then in the middle of each yo yo I hand sewed Cez glass beads in the center of them
