Today, I am sharing my first ever shadowbox. The theme, as you can see, is Halloween. I was inspired by a project on display in my local Michaels, although their's was twice this size. It took me quite awhile, so I am glad I opted for a smaller size!
I started by adhering a piece of Graphic 45 "An Eerie Tale" paper as the background. I gathered a variety of product using Jolee and Recollections stickers, Tim Holtz vials and charm, cheesecloth, an assortment of leaves and some fall floral picks which I cut apart to use for decorations.

In the next two photos, you can see a bit of how I decorated the inside parts of the frame.
Microbeads were placed in two of the vials. On the larger vial inside the box, I gave the outside of it a coating of Golden Acrylic Pearl Mica Flake to make it look like the contents overflowed.
As you can see, there is a lot going on here. I am pleased with the results considering it is my first attempt at this. The only thing I think I may have done differently is to use a black shadowbox instead of the white.
We have a beautiful, crisp fall day today after a couple of days of summerlike weather. I am enjoying the fresh, clean air. I hope the week ahead is a good one for you and thanks so much for stopping by.
