I totally LOVE how perfectly this box crackled for me
Here is a close up picture of the Antique Ivory Victorian Cottage Style Shadow Box,
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??

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 a new baby's bottom smoothness.
Hand painted first layer in Poetry Green, After drying I then applied my crackle..
after drying once again applied Antique Cream over the crackle
I totally LOVE how perfectly this box crackled .
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..
Why:
1 st:
Will First he always makes me smile
2 nd: He makes me feel cool
3 rd: I adore the colors
4 th: he makes see him through the eyes of a child,
5 th : I also become very creative and new inspirations
That alone is cool and refreshing, Mentally, Spiritually, and even Physically. Thinking as child is good thing for * relaxing * your body and your mind..
Think about it *Big Smile* as a child did you have knots in your neck :)~

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...
