Faux Shadow Box

Anyone who follows Nancy Riley's blog (iStamp by Nancy Riley) will know that her creativity has had to take a back seat these past several months.  Yesterday she was back with a fantastic shadow box project.  You can see it HERE

I knew I wanted to make one, but was housebound and couldn't get out to buy a frame.  I wanted to do it right away so I searched around until I found a couple of artist canvases in my craft room.  Happily I set to work adapting Nancy's creation to the supplies on hand.  I decided to use the smaller canvas - about 8" x 10". 

I used the same papers as Nancy but had to reduce the number of squares to accommodate the smaller size canvas I was using.  Overall I am really pleased with my version and think it still maintains the "flavour" of the original.
