Check out the original post here for the full details of the challenge

Well for me i decided to go for 
Category -3 ~ Everything else ! 

Here is my mixed media shadow box  

Today i have s start to finish tutorial on how i made this shadowbox. 

This is how i used my letters 

L- Layering , lindy's stamp gang mists 
P-  Pink mist, Prima butterfly & flower, Punches, Prima stencil .
C - Cardstock , Clocks
T- Texture paste
 I first started with a handmade shadow box. its about 8X8 approx.
Made of cardstock.
 I then applied some texture paste on to it . Using a mask. 
Let it dry for a while , If u have a heat gun USE IT !
After that go play with your mists ! I have used a lot of Lindy's stamp gang mists ! 
We are giving away a few bottles to the winners this challenge :D 
so go play !

With all that misting dry , go ahead and layer your pieces . 
I am using this die cut that i had Its totally like a hanging sign. 
I had cut it with some left over packaging material.
I used gesso over it , for that vintagy look. 

I then layered my Sentiment on top of the frame. 
There is a bit of distressing involved !
 Then comes in my stamped and die cut clocks and flourish. 
Over which i decided to layer all the flowers :) 
since i went diagonal on the misting , i decided to fill the flowers into the white spaces. 

Here are a few close ups of the embellishments.

 And that's the final look !

 Hope u liked my work :)
