Altered Shadow Box using the "Life Abloom" Printable Journal by DESIGN TEAM MEMBERS Steph D. and Dawn Smith

Sharing another Design Team Project for Tsunami Rose Designs.
I altered a mini canvas using a couple of the gorgeous images from the "Life Abloom" Printable Journal.
I started off with this little wood box that I got for free along with a little Japanese towel inside from Marukai as my free birthday gift. It was dark brown so I painted it with a couple coats of gesso. I then adhered some tissue paper with text print that I got from the Target Dollar Bin to the outside faces of the box. I distressed it with white acrylic paint.
I adhered the gorgeous papers from the
"Life Abloom" printable journal  to all faces of the inside of the box as well as the front faces of the box. I fussy-cut the roses and adhered them on the left corner of the box. I also adhered the paper to the back of the Kaisercraft Wood Flourishes teapot and to the front of the teacup. All the edges are distressed with gesso or white acrylic paint.
I added a paper doilie to the back of the box and also an image I cut from the paper. I added a bunch of Wild Orchid Crafts roses, halfback pearls, trinket pearls, bling, Stampin Up! cabochon, a crochet doilie from my friend Marisa, and some bits of Prima Alencon and other laces. I also added a bow that I made from some seam binding.

Here is a my video of my project:

Now On To DT
Dawn Smith's Project
I am not ready to take on a full shadow box yet, that is a bit outside my comfort zone, so I am starting small with a memory box first, and will work my way up lol. As y'all know my girls are in ballet, they have their first recital coming up in May, so thats what this box will be for. The whole class has their pictures taken before the recital in the costumes, which will be the picture I put in the frame and then inside I will put the dvd or their preformance and all the programs and ticket stubs and photos of practices and stuff. I used the Tsunami Rose Designs "Life Abloom" Printable Journal and mod poged the crap out of them like I always do, lol!!! Some prima flowers and lace and the shall we dance cricut cart. and the memory box is only $2.00 at So get the papers and make your own box!
