Shabby Chic Shadow Box (DT project for Reneabouquets)

I found this arrow shaped shadow box on clearance at Joann's. I thought it would be cute to create a configuration type box that played off the arrow design! My thought process was to decorate it as if finding your "happy wishes, love and dreams" are right this way. I wanted all the embellishments to coordinate with my thought process and relate to the words I had chosen to use. I used black gesso with a pounce brush to paint and create texture on the shadow box. For the " dream" word, I used Prima heavy white gesso and the pounce brush again for texture. The other words, I used Prima color bloom sprays to match the paper line I was using...which was DCWV Immortal Love stack. I loved the color combo of black, grey, pink. I chose to use flowers from Wild a Orchid Crafts, Prima and some of  Micheals dollar bin flowers (my usual array of chosen flowers). I chose to bring the whole project together with many products from Reneabouquets. And I completed the look with the beautiful handmade butterflies by Renea as well as her excellent quality of Glitter Glass . It adds a romantic touch, don't you think? The individual links to the products I used will be below, or if you would like to go to the home page of Renea's shop, just click on the store link to the right on my sidebar.
