Mixed Media Shadow box

Hi Guys, so I am back again with a mixed
media project, this time its a shadow box. I started with a ready made
card box which I had gotten during Diwali and added some texture to it
using the tissue paper with decoupage glue
and then I added lots of layers using a lot of stuff lying random in my
house. Before I get in to the details, here is the look at the box –

Some more closeups and than the materials that were used and some inspirations behind this box –

Mixed Media Shadow box 1
I have used a lots of Clay molds
from CraftAdda, as they are one of my favorite medium to play with
these days. I have also used Tim Holtz dies and some old keys lying
around the house. Since this shadow box is a gift to one of my friends
on his wedding I wanted to incorporate some sentiment from their wedding
and hence have added H&K center piece from their Wedding Invitation

More clay molds and tissue created background in this closeup 🙂

I was really inspired by a wired necklace at one of the blog and
decided to add the Love element on the box. I got some normal wires
from the hardware store (apologies I don’t remember the name), but
anything that can be bended will work. Using some of the pliers and
hands I was able to shape the metal. I have used lot of hot glue and
some stick fast to stick the metal. If someone has some other glue which
works best, do let me know. Once the metal was stuck I traced it down
using golden Fevicryl glitter tube and then heated it to get the above
effect. I have colored the entire box using home made glimmer mist
I have used again Vintage button clay mold to create these buttons, which are being used as clasps. I have also used some ribbon to close the clasp which are dyed using the sprays. Now to the inside of the box –
Some closeups of the same –
I die cut a piece of heart using the Die and
than added some stamping and clay molds. The background texture is
created using the band aid cloth bought from a medical shop and then
colored everything using sprays.

Inside I have placed their photo and some sentiments on clay mold which is mounted using  wooden clips. I have also used some heart embellishments to decorate the project.

So guys hoped u liked the project and Happy crafting to you 🙂
