Hello there. Today I'd like to show you a little shadow box frame project I created to highlight a photo I just love of my husband and I. We danced together at our daughter's wedding 2 years ago. Somehow, I missed this photo before. I love the look on my husband's face as I whispered in his ear. I can't recall now what I may have told him, but I do know that I had to do something special with it.
I really feel like the image expresses how we feel about each other, even after 21 years together.
The look I wanted to create was reminiscent of a graduated hall. I saw this photo that inspired me to try to accomplish the layered look I ended up with. In order to acheive it, I had to cut larger and larger windows in full sheets of paper. I then backed each sheet with long strips of dimensional foam tape to lift each layer from the next.
While relatively simple, it did take a bit of time to get all of the sizes correct but I love the finished result.
I added some wood veneer pieces to incorporate different textures. I also did one round of the layers using a shiny 'subway' patterned tape I have to create added texture. Silhouette helped me create a beautiful and classic title.

The end result produces a page that could never be used in an album as it's quite thick (at least 1/2 inch, but it is perfect for a shadow box.
