Shadow Box

It's been quite a scrapbooking worldwind lately.  I've been working on many, many fun projects for Creating Keepsakes and CHA.  I think I set a new record for myself.  In a 4 or 5 week period I completed 26 -- yes, 26 -- different projects, which included 16 layouts, 1 altered canvas, 2 necklaces, 1 bracelet, 1 altered teapot, 1 card, 1 ATC, 1 paper doll clothesline, 1 tag, and 1 pair of paper shoes using my shoe template.  This has been quite a feat for a slow "turtle scrapper" like me.  But sleep is overrated, right?  Now I'm looking forward to a taking a little scrapping break. 

Before I start posting some of these newly created projects, here's something I made a little while back for the Prima blog.  It's a "shadow box" layout made with layers of cardstock.  I love to create projects with a rainbow of color.  Bright, vibrant ROYGBIV colors make me very happy! 

I cut squares from a sheet of Prima's Screenprinted Canvas and then I colored them with Ranger alcohol inks. I used several sheets of white cardstock to create the dimensional shadow box effect.  I simply cut out the center of each sheet in graduated steps, then I separated the layers with extra thick foam adhesive.  Yep, this thick puppy is going on the wall rather than in a page protector.
