Time Goes By- Altered shadow box
Here is a store bought shadow bx that I altered. It started out life as a white glossy frame. I have been collecting various bits and pieces for a while and decided now was the time.
Add Prima texture crackle paste with a palate knife on smooth surfaces and let dry. Add Copper metallic paint with a dry brush. once dry add a touch of Silks Acrylic glaze in turquoise with a dry brush as well. Add bits of Blue crystals and pearls to highlight. I mounted this on acetate leaving a border of clear plastic so it looks like its floating in the frame.
Layering die cuts, chipboard and other embellishments and decicing what looks good.
I sanded lightly before I did this next few steps as it was a glossy frame and I knew the Geeso would be repelled. I applied modeling paste through a stensil to 3 sides (not the bottom) and let dry. Cover the inside border and the outside of the frame and modelling paste with Black geeso. I applied 2 coats, then I drybrushed on the copper and the turquoise paints again.
This isn't a great pic of my finished product as the light kept throwing a reflection off the glass. I do love it and really enjoyed making it as well.
