Voodoo Shadowbox & Voodoo Collection SALE!

Filed under Art Projects, Giveaways, Miniatures, Sale, Shannon Cooper
Update! A newer post about Shannon’s artwork is here.

A totally unexpected project for this time of year, but I love it! Design Team Member Shannon Cooper’s Voodoo Shadowbox is so creepy cool! AND I’ve created a whole “Voodoo Collection Sale” around the items in Shannon’s supply list (plus I added more potion labels and bottles to bring the sale up to 50 items, then added everything with “SKULL” in the title, too)!

But before we delve into the sale, back to this fab project! Here’s some text from Shannon’s blog post:

I’ve had this awesome Mini Wooden Printer’s Type Tray Shadowbox from Alpha Stamps on my craft table for some time, just waiting for a me to fill it with lots of little notions. Next to the tray lay a handful of doodads, and while on hold with the USPS during the holidays, I rifled through the stuff and eventually began gluing things together while patiently waiting my turn. By the time a real-live person answered the call, I had several bottles filled with herbs and feathers, tiny jars, some rhinestones glued into a skull’s eye sockets, and quite a few Tarot cards snipped from the Tiny Divination Cards Collage Sheet (also in pic below). We won’t mention the wait time. :/

The printer’s tray was brown to begin with, and I had painted it a darker brown, only to discover that was not the answer for what I was going for. So all of its cubbies got a paint job and the front was covered with bronze metallic paint and then dry brushed with black. That’ll do.

I didn’t fret over what went where or making things just so. It was more of an “I’m going to glue this right here and all will be fine, moving on” kind of project. A few images from various collage sheets, like the Little Potions one, were glued to the backs of a few cubbies, and then the bottles, candles (psst, they are mostly real candles, minus the red one on the skull which is beeswax and embroidery floss!) were added, followed by some Spring Green Lichen Mix and other natural elements. All of the roses were cut from tissue paper and glued around a wire stem.

[Aside: I added the White Mini Rose Buds to the supply list so they’re part of the sale, too. They look the right size for that little white rose to the left of large-ish skull with the red candle — see close-up below, too. Oh, and that tall amber resin bottle to the right of the same skull is new! Also in the pic at right.]
