Altered Shadow Box Frame *Tattered Angels*

I had this frame for a while now and wanted to do someting fun with it. When I got the amazing new Fall 2010 Glimmer Mist Colors I knew I wanted to use them for a project with the frame.

I’m sure you can find something like this at a dollar store – so here is how I altered it – I hope you have fun with the video:

Here are the Supplies I used:

Tattered Angels: Glimmer Mist Fall 2010 Colors, Glimmer Glam Chandelier, Glimmer Screens, Tattered Trinket, Rockn’ Renaissance Costum Cut Outs, Tattered Traveler Clear Compact, Framed Fonts; SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES by 3L™ Foam Pads and Crafty Power Tape, Clear Gesso, Pepples, Prism white Cardstock

Here is the frame and some details after it’s finished:

As you can see I mounted the framed font butterfly on the Compact and then attached the key on top. Inside the compact you see some Glimmer Glam- yum yum 🙂

I cut out the crown and mounted it on double stacked SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES by 3L Foam Pads. I filled the Shadow Box with pebbles.

If you want to learn more fun techniques using Tattered Angels come and visit my upcoming Tattered Angels workshops or book them for your store. Here is a place where I will be teaching some of those and other fun techniques next:

    Love that smiling Nat with longer hair. Wonderful video…makes it so much easier to see how to use the glimmer mist. Seems I need to use my heat gun more. The blue pebbles add some fun movement.
