My project I created was a 'Reverse Canvas Shadowbox' using the October Afternoon Public Library Collection. This paper is a nice heavy weight allowing it to stand up to just about any task. This collection came with some sticker sheets of the same heavy weight papers which made it easy to use them as stand alone embellishments or matting them to make them even more substantial. I wanted to use this collection to make a shadowbox for my granddaughter since she is an avid reader, and this paper line is definitely geared to books, hence the name. I took her picture the other day while she was reading her cat book and printed it out, then fussy cut her and her book to use in the shadowbox. I love how it turned out and know she will be excited to get it as she also is a 7 year old scrapper making mini albums herself. This shadowbox can be hung on the wall or displayed on an easel. I included a removable little booklet that can be used to journal and tucks nicely inside the box. I love including a little booklet or waterfall somewhere in or on my projects. I hope you enjoy it and if you have any questions, feel free to drop by my blog at: Crosseyedcricketcreations.blogspot.com and leave me a note.
