Aqua, Yellow and Grey

I love this trio of colors. Inspired by my Scrapbook Circle February kit, as well as a patterned paper from the Miss Art's January kit, I pulled together bits and pieces to make this shadow box.

I backed all but the center box with patterned paper, then filled the little cubbies with things from my stash. I wrapped bits of leftover trim around clothespins, added a pair of brads to a shipping tag, clustered buttons with a gorgeous setting from Epiphany Crafts...

...added Precocious Paper roses and a grey felt rose, grouped a die-cut with a button and a Scrabble piece (P for Precocious), filled bottles with glitter and micro beads, and draped a banner across the last section.

I chose to leave the shadow box in its natural state, but I was very tempted to do a color wash or to paint it. I have another and will definitely be doing something along those lines with it.

If you are in the US, I hope you are enjoying your President's Day! We are laying low this morning after a very full weekend. Colten received his cub scout awards and the Blue and Gold dinner was a success. I'm working on a new class for Miss Art's, as well as a to-do list of at least a dozen other things. Life is good this Monday morning. I hope yours is too! Enjoy your day! Tessa


  1. I love these colors together! I've been waiting for some inspiration to hit to re-decorate our Master bedroom and I think this was just what I needed. Great work, as always!

  2. Wow this is a great job, I love the colurs and the abjects that you used are wonderful.

  3. this turned out SO amazing--SERIOUSLY!
