Woodland Shadowbox + New Tiny Things on Sale!

Filed under Art Projects, Miniatures, Shannon Cooper, Tutorials, Woodland Window Box Kit

Design Team Member Shannon Cooper has made a beautiful and clever) lighted shadowbox with the Woodland Window Box Kit. Plus there are a bunch of new miniature things today, and everything in Shannon’s project AND all the new things are in a new SALE collection!

I’ll let Shannon explain a bit about her project:

Life has been a bit crazy lately, but I managed a little art project for Alpha Stamps using the pretty Woodland Window Box Kit. I’ve been ready to make art for awhile now but found the days ending before my To Do list was completed. This kit made it possible to squeeze in some creativity which is exactly what I had been missing for so many weeks!

I really love the new facade with an inset niche: it adds extra space around the opening of the Even Smaller Paper Theatre Box for decorating and the Window with Flower Box is icing on the cake! The finished project is small enough that, when not mounted to a platform base like my example, can be hung on a wall or displayed on an easel. How cute would that be?

I decided to glue a bunch of bushy plants and mushrooms to mine, so went with the 5×2 Platform Base. An arch of twigs (with white roses) was glued to the base and, as a bonus, I got to use more of the scrummy Woodland 6×6 Paper Pad. It’s beautiful paper.

The back is fairly simple with more greenery. The window from the Decorative Windows Set 1:12 holds a surprise: Ooooh, a light!

The Even Smaller Paper Theatre Boxes are 3/4″ deep, so the wireless Single LED Light I used worked out nicely. It gave the lanterns on the collage image a warm light to shine on Snow White.

Note: Shannon didn’t have to cut away any of the collage sheet image for the light to shine through (she just placed it close to the back of the image and right at the level of the lantern). See a preview of Shannon’s tutorial in the wide photo below (using a piece of a matchbox to create a little pocket for the light).

Beautiful work, Shannon! A few more supplies are shown below; see everything Shannon used to make The Unexpected Guest in the Supply List. And see more photos and a tutorial on Shannon’s blog post.
