The inspiration for this Halloween-themed shadowbox came from Pinterest, where I saw a shadowbox from the blog Meme's Art Place made using the same theme.
The papers are from Graphic 45 and are the "Hallowe'en in Wonderland Collection." I've been hoarding the set for a couple years, so I'm not sure if it's still available. I've seen similar collections with a Wizard of Oz theme, and those tempt me as well. The tray/shadowbox is from 7 Gypsies. The embellishments are miscellaneous finds from my stash. I also used ribbon, Stickles and Liquid Pearls, and I edged a lot of the papers with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Ranger.
Some of the papers are flat against the back of the tray, and I glued some to the top for depth, and I like the shadows they make. Here's a close-up look at my favorite--the creepy hand reaching toward the white rabbit.
And here are some other close-ups showing the various embellishments:
|It's hard to see, but the pocket watch's face on the right is covered with shiny Stickles.|
|The Mad Hatter's bowtie and socks both have Liquid Pearl highlights.|
This project was fun and probably only took 1 to 1 1/2 hours, mostly because the papers all matched so I didn't have to make a lot of paper/color decisions.
