Bountiful Harvest Altered Shadowbox Frame Tutorial

 A Place in Time Bountiful Harvest Altered Shadowbox Frame Tutorial for Frilly and Funkie

Hello Friends!  Thanksgiving is my very favorite holiday of the year. So I was thrilled to learn that our hostess, Nancy, chose the  theme  Bountiful Harvest for the latest challenge at the Frilly and Funkie Blog.  I went rummaging through the Closet of Shame and pulled together this and that to make this vintage Bountiful Harvest Altered Shadowbox Frame.  Let’s see what Nancy has to say about this challenge.

Bountiful Harvest
Create any vintage or shabby chic project celebrating the bounty of the season in the rich hues of Autumn.

Graphic 45 A Place in Time and Tammy Tutterow Posie Stamps and Dies

bountiful-harvest-altered-shadowbox-frame-tutorial-for-frilly-and-funkie-kathy-clement-photo-1I found this wooden shadowbox frame in the clearance bin at Michaels.  It measures about 7.25″ wide by 9.25″ tall with a generous depth of 1.25″.  That gave me lots and lots of room to create this  pretty Thanksgiving vignette.

I used some fun mixed media techniques to give the frame this tree bark appearance.  The flowers were such fun to design with Tammy’s Stamps and dies.  If you have bits and pieces of the original Place in time calendar papers languishing in your Closet of Shame, this is a great way to use them up.  You’ll learn how I did it in the Snapguide tutorial below.

    Hi Kathy!
    I’m just trying to figure out where to start again-lol! Your shadow box is another example of how each and every one of your projects goes above and beyond what the laws of physics dictate what one can do with paper!! It tells a heartwarming story of the heritage of Thanksgiving in every single nook and cranny, from the focal image to each perfect embellishment. The handmade flowers are absolutely breathtaking. I MUST get those dies–yes, you have me impulse shopping! I wish the most wonderful of Thanksgivings to you and your family.

    Oh Nancy this is utterly divine!!! I love the clustering of handmade flowers around the gorgeous frame and clever addition of the spoon and trophy cup in with all the other seasonal nature elements. Looking forward to sitting and enjoying your Snapguide to find out more xx

    Kathy, I always love when you do a dimension project because there are so many delicious details. I could sit and stare at this for days and see new things each time. I love your flowers, and really need to get that Frayed Posies die. I just sadly passed up the utensils at Michaels this afternoon, but they are back on the list. This has got to be my favorite of the many wonderful details on this super creative work of art! The way you covered your frame is brilliant and I’m so happy you shared your creative secrets! Big hugs!
