Thursday, March 5, 2015

We are thrilled to introduce today's Guest Designer Suzanne!! She is one incredibly talented lady and has an extraordinary project to share with you! Be sure to check out all the details on this one! Wow!! I'm sure Suzanne would love it if you left her some blog love today! 

Hello everyone this is Suzanne from Cricutcraftinggrammyblogspot here today to share with you my project.  I am so thrilled to be invited by Barb Craft to be a guest designer at Frosted Designs.  I have followed Frosted Designs for a few years now and have always found the Design team,
 the tutorials and the challenges very inspirational.  
I hope you enjoy my project as much as I enjoyed creating it so I could share with you today.   I love Graphic 45, shabby chic and vintage items so love creating shadowbox and off the page projects.     
This shadowbox from K and Company is 12 x 12 so each square is 4 x 6.  
I bought it at Target last year on clearance.  
Paper collection is Graphic 45 Secret Garden 
Angel, bridge, and shutters are Prima 
Variety of mosses from a bag from Michaels 
Flowers and leaves Wild Orchid Crafts and Michaels  
Glimmer Mist Crushed Shells 
Prima and Tim Holtz Distress Inks 
Other embellishments, bud flowers, stones, tiny shoes, tiny tools and wood box from my stash.  
Yes I admit I collect goodies wherever I go.  
Little stones with words I found in miniature section you can find in craft stores.  
More info with closeup pictures  
Each page is like a little mini page but I also used items over in several squares to tie things together.  

Here is what the shadowbox looked like before I started.  

Graphic 45 papers cut into 4 x 6 rectangles and 3/4 inch strips for sides.
The edge is also has strips of paper glued to it at 1 inch strips.  I started at middle of bottom and overlapped so  pieces did not peel on corners.  
I then sprayed lightly with Glimmer Mist Spray Crushed Shells and used a brush  to mute the white edges and let it sit over night.  

Closeups of each rectangle

Left top corner 
Each center rectangle is inked with brown ink and pop dotted for dimension.  
The roses and leaves are fussy cut from a second piece, inked and pop dotted.  
Used a punch for tag and added Graphic 45 sticker. 
Cherish metal word and bird nest from Recollections (Michaels)

Fussy cut girl, fence and flowers.  Then inked pop dotted,  Added shutters to each edge.

Butterflies Martha Stewart punch double layered for dimension 
Charm from stash

You can see the moss and roses overflowing from top center.
