Here's my completed project:
Now, here are some details and helpful hints. First, see that big picture in color? Yeah, there was no spot big enough to put that in the shadowbox. But lucky for me, there were three smaller boxes in a row that were all the same height. Here's how I altered the space to contain this picture:
Scotch ATG on the side tabs and adhered it into the space.
Now, on to the fun part - decorating! FYI, sepia toned photographs look great with this paper pad (and with most vintage look papers). I decided on the papers and items I wanted to use, and dry fit them into each space. I also cut a Family Time title using my Cricut Expression and the A Child's Year cartridge. After fitting was complete, I separated my papers and pieces in two piles: neutrals and colors. I got out my Glimmer Mist and sprayed all of the color items with Pearl, and all of my neutral items with Creme de Chocolat.
Glossy Accents to outline and fill these areas and let those dry.
Once dry, I adhered the papers in the spaces using my Scotch ATG. I added some copper brads to some of my punch-out images, then layered in my punch-outs using adhesive foam squares.
Stickles for some extra bling. I used touches of Broken China, Scattered Straw (both Distress Stickles), and Black Diamond on parts of my punch-out images.
