And now for something completely different!

No, this isn’t an episode of Monty Python’s Flying Circus (she says showing her age)! I am sharing a project I’ve been working on and it’s a bit different to my usual creations! Lately I’ve been enjoying using my supplies and tools to try to stretch them and get the most from them. I LOVE scrolling through Pinterest, ETSY, Instagram and even TikTok looking at gorgeous home decor and crafts. I am in love with shadow boxes right now and have a whole bunch of different ones sitting in a cupboard that I bought with full intentions to create magical works of art.

Well, instead of leaving them there to collect dust I am turning them into something beautiful. And here’s my first one!

Isn’t this fun? I am very happy with this considering it’s my first real go at it. And I’m particularly pleased because I used all materials that I already owned!

The rainbow was created using the Pinkfresh Rainbow Colour Block Die. I cut it multiple times from white cardstock then stacked them for dimension. The top layers were each inked using Catherine Pooler Inks then heat embossed three times with clear embossing powder and a 4th time with holographic embossing powder. I adhered it onto some heavyweight white card cut to fit the back panel of the frame and used liquid glue to add Essentials By Ellen rainbow Droplets.

The clouds at the front were cut using a die from Avery Elle (shh, this is a sneak peek!!) and layered up twice to give more dimension.

Once everything was secured and dried I put the frame back together. To personalise it I used my Cricut Explore to cut my daughter’s name from white vinyl. Isn’t it pretty?!
