Quirky Bird Shadow Box

Morning Everyone, hope you all have a good Friday and weekend planned.

Today I have a shadow box I created on a recent Facebook Live for Stamper's Grove. I joined Olga Heldwein in a joint live, creating together, it was such fun.

I really enjoyed creating this piece. I spent quite a bit of time thinking about the whole concept and I am rather pleased with the outcome. Hope you like it too.


I love the technique I used in the background, The Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Spray worked so well, adding to the overall grungy/vintage feel of my piece.


I also incorporated some embellishments using my stamps and a Hot Glue Gun and I love the outcome. Some quirky additions.


I also incorporated some stencilling in the backdrop to add a further layer of interest.

I also added some lollipop sticks to give further dimension and interest along with some rusty organic bird houses/cages.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed looking at the closer details of this project.

Great projects this week I thoroughly enjoyed watching you create this but had to leave early as my 4 year old grandson FaceTimeed me and I wasn’t going to pass on that especially in lockdown
