I love what Rhonda did with the new 6×6 Shadowbox! Filled with so many little treasures (in that row of cubbies, which can be used across the top, down the side, or across the bottom of your shadowbox). And all of those pretty pink posies! (And pink and black and silver chipboard silhouettes!)
Here’s a preview from Rhonda’s Blog Post:
There are so many wonderful items to choose from in this month’s Cinderella Kit. Decisions, decisions. Do I go with the pitiful Cinderella being pushed around, or the magical beauty taking on her destiny? How about both!
And luckily I was using this 6×6 Shadowbox as my base which gave me lots of room for plenty of details and embellishments. And I’ve always been a huge fan of pink and black.
I didn’t want all of my chipboard silhouettes to be the usual “black” so I decided to do some with a bit of color. I used a couple of shades of pink from Tim Holtz Distress Paint Line and for my black silhouettes I used more Distress Paints in Black Soot and Tarnished Brass. It gave a bit of dimension and character to my shapes.
I always like dimension and one favorite “tool” from my creative kit is to use adhesive foam to make images stand out, and also some stand out further than others like the black silhouettes below.
Vintage pocket watches are a great way to create a mini magical creative spot. I used an authentic one but Tim Holtz also has a wonderful faux version.
Hooray for the Cinderella Shadowbox Giveaway!
