Say that three times real fast. Ha!
I was able to complete my shadowbox this weekend. I couldn’t find letters that were the right size or color, so I used my daughter’s suggestion and made the background and lettering on the computer.
I glued this background to the back of the frame with rubber cement. This was a trick I learned years ago in college. Rubber cement does not wrinkle paper when it dries, and it dries clear. I used my hot glue gun to add the sea shells.
I used cardboard covered with the original scrapbook paper and made a collage to put in the foreground.
And the final results looks like this.
It now hangs in my bathroom, beside the reminder that there is always time for going shelling.
I filled up my old blue canning jars, and lamp, with shells. I still need more shells to complete one of the jars. Maybe next year… hummm.
Are you working on any end of summer, or fall crafts right now?
