|(I used black vinyl on the front of the glass to add the title)|
Here's the final piece, it's a 9x20 shadowbox frame. So the character's were pretty small, and a TON of little tiny pieces!!
So, my mom had planted a thought of what she wanted to do with MY skills, lol! She wanted me to make her paper piecings so she could put together a shadowbox frame type deal. I told her it would have to wait until after Christmas because I was making all of my gifts this year and wouldn't have the time.
So, I was thinking about it, trying to figure out a way to make it match her house. ( She has an old 1920's Craftsman Bungalow in Southern California) That's the house I grew up in so I know it well. She's a Disney freak, like I am, so I know what she likes. She wanted Snow White, real classic and woodsy type piece. So here's what I cam up with! BTW.. I gave it to her for Christmas and she actually cried!! She said, it was like I climbed into her brain, and pulled out all of the images that she imagined it would look like, and put it into reality for her! That made my day!
I do have to give a HUGE shout out to one of my besties Callyann Cornwell! This was like the ONLY Disney Cricut cat I didn't have, so she loaned it to me! Thank you Love!!!
|With out the title|
|used 3D foam adhesive to make them dimensional|
|trying to figure out a place all of the characters|
|Used the Immortal paper stack for the trees lol!|
|Trees had about 3-4 layers to make them fill up the shadow box frame|
|tiny pieces!! lol|
|done with the background|
|done with the characters.. inked all of the edges and gave them all shadowing and chalked their cheeks for more of a realistic look|
|all coming together|
|they all had different amount of foam adhesive to give them different depths in the frame|
My mom has already put in another order for a Pinocchio one next! I guess she liked it so much, that she wants to fill her house with more!!
Hope you all enjoyed looking at my progress through this project!
Happy New Year!
