Shadow box - Free heart


When I first saw the new Mix Media Origins papers from Tattered angels, I knew I had to try them. Starting with one that I thought would be very versatile to me, since it works as an amazing background in layouts as it does on its own, I cut out parts of it.  I could combine the pieces with other papers or use the wings alone because they fit with various scrapbooking and mix media projects.

However, I wasn’t able to divide the beauty of this paper into pieces, at least not during the first use.

The main concept behind my project comes from the desire to create a piece of art that will catch the eye on the page’s theme: the wings. I wanted to take advantage of the colouring possibilities that the quality of the paper provides, while not loosing the greyscale shades of the paper design. Leaving a portion of grayscale is like the effect made by torn pages from an old book.

A shadow box was the perfect way to do what I wanted because I could create depth, protect the finished pages and of course, make it easy to hang on a wall.
