I bought this Tim Holz shadow box ages ago with the plans to make something for Shirley for Christmas. Then it came and it was this glossy tan color that kind of threw me off for a bit. And it looked complicated. Well, this weekend, I had our big advent calendar from Silhouette I had purchased to work on (I know, I am behind!!!!) that needed to be spray painted black, so I decided I would try spraying this tray white. It might have been cheap spray paint, but it wasn't cooperating.
I wanted WHITE because I had spotted this color combo at The Color Room and fell IN LOVE.
Spray painted was NOT covering, so I had to pull out some gesso and some light blue glimmermist. The nice part about the gesso was the texture I got around the edges that I got to add some sparkle to! Love it!
All the little bits that went into this box I found at a local store, carefully picking through what was left of the ornaments. In fact, the little green glittery tree I had found MUCH earlier in the season and cut it down A LOT to fit into this box. Love the little blue bird of happiness! Love the flowers that I dyed to match the orange color in the challenge and crinkle ribbon!
Check it out! She came over early yesterday morning to grab her present and by the afternoon, I had photos!
I have the most lovely present from her to show you, but I was hoping at some point yesterday we'd get some sun so I could get a photo outside. NOPE! You will just have to wait. Every time I pass it, it makes me smile!!! Love gifts like that made with love!
