Finally I've got something to show and personally, I love it!
At the Mixed Media Divas group I'm a member of, I participated in a Spring Challenge. The group owner sends every participant a box filled with goodies, and gives you a challenge. For this one you had to use letters and numbers.
It took me a long time and almost some sleepless nights to come up with something, but after going to the Dollarama and finding this cute Shadow box, the plan started to take shape!
I've painted the box with Distress crackle paint Faded Jeans and added some Distress ink Tea Dye to accent the crackles. Some paintchips came of during that, but that looks kind of old/vintagy, so I didn't do anything about it. Glued some scrapbookpaper in the inside, added some pieces out of the goody box, (map and letter/number paper) cut some numbers out of bingo cards. After that I cut out the cute fairy and glued in on the side of the box. Then I started playing with the letters and numbers that were in the goody box but couldn't make the words I wanted to, so I used my own letter beads (good thing to never throw anything out!) and used Aleene's Tacky Glue for them. The moss and hummingbird I got at Walmart, and just had to use them, looks so darn cute!
The numbers inside the box, don't mean a lot to you, but mean everything to me, streetnumbers, birthdays, the number 17 which is the date we moved to Canada, a turning point in my life. 6 Numbers, moved 6 times in my life, "Travel with Me" is the journey I/we have made to come at the point in our lives where I/we feel good! (sounds kind of sentimentel, but that's how I feel it!)
Here some more detailed pictures.
