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.
