Today I have a snowy winter shadow box to share with you. The main feature is a single sheet of scrapbook paper and some dusty attic snowflakes and trees.
And to add some extra interest, I drilled a hole in the back and fed some small slim fairy lights through so the scene could be illuminated during the dark winter nights.
I started with a blank wood shadow box I happened to have in my stash (for about the last 5 years)... I painted it with white paint inside and also the frame part.
Then I prepared the trees by painting them with a rusty effect and used my finger to dab on white paint to look like snow, and painted all the snowflakes white and added some crystal clear glitter.
Next I turned my attention to the main focus. The scrap book paper.
Cut out enough extra around the base to make a gold for easy glueing. I distressed the background around the edges using a paper distresser and some distress ink.
I glued the back scene in first and dotted little flat back pearls and rhinestone style beads to it to make stars.
I added snowtex to the “floor” of the box and sprinkled clear glitter over it. It made it twinkle like frosty crisp snow.
I fed my lights in through a hole drilled in the back and begun to construct my scene.
I used embellishments and white net to help disguise the wire of the lights, and rather than waste it,I used the left over bits from the trees to make icicles.
