Live Simply-Shadowbox Mixed Media Project #2

Hi Everyone!

In my last post I created a Live Simply shadowbox piece. I like this mantra so much that I decided to create another piece using the same mantra. This time I created an all lace canvas with embellishments, no paint was used. This time instead of going with a nature theme, I decided to go with a vintage look, which also conjures in my mind a simpler more innocent time.

How it's made

I used a 5x7 canvas, used different types of lace, pearls, linen paper, hemp string, and paper butterflies and flowers. The flower are made out crochet and hemp string and used a vintage looking brad as the flower's center. The word were printed on linen paper; which is so cool, cause it looks just linen, but you can print, stamp, etc. I used this vintage typewriter font, I downloaded for free from Google docs just for this project. I liked this font so much so much I used the same font for other art projects. The  butterflies and flower are made from paper. That is all I have on this very snowy day. Enjoy, the simple life!
