Shadow Box Done!

Yea!  Another project is done!  I only bought this shadow box from Red Lead Paper Works hmmm two years ago!  I should be working on Christmas projects for my etsy shop, but I'm on a roll of finishing up old projects.  I originally painted the box yellow, but I repainted it with vintage white and added some Tim Holtz stain and a little green paint to it.  The fern in the middle is a Martha Stewart sticker, but the other two ferns are real and sealed with wax.  The fern on the left turned an interesting color when the wax was used.  The only things that were added was the little bird, a butterfly and some flowers.  I love it!  Thanks for looking!

I love it too Kelly!! I just bought some preserved ferns for my Fall Christmas tree. Bobby G. has a huge built in fish tank and I actually used real ferns on the wall surrounding it. I stuck them on the wall and painted right over them. People seem to love it. xo Lynn @thevintagenestblog
