3 D - Shadow Box Frame

Hi ...Dearies

Today I have a new project to share with you all.  Its a three dimensional work which I played with and hope you all will enjoy as I take you thru the project.

Defining 3D :
"Form" is a term used to describe three-dimensional artwork. Forms can be geometric or organic. Three-dimensional art has volume, which is the amount of space occupied by the form. The form also has mass, which means that the volume is solid and occupies space. Simulating  the effect of depth by presenting slightly different view of a scene to each eye. 

Here I share a normal photo frame which I have converted into a 3d shadow box photo frame......and yeah...there's Valentine's fever catching up with Romance in air everywhere. 
So I picked the new Papericious Valentines Special paper pack / chippies for this project....and just loved playing with it.

I have the pics here as to how I worked on the project:

This was the frame I choose to work on......

Applied Prima Heavy gesso black and painted the frame full....heat set it and applied Finnabair Texture paste, and art stones and later applied dry brush of alchemy copper acrylic paint. After it dried sprinkled some micro beads on the frame for more texture with 3D gel.

      frame was all set...with a new look 😍😍😍

Now next was to make the main part.....Shadow Box....

Here I measured the chipboard as per the measurement of your photo frame glass since the box has to fit into your frame evenly I cut chipboard and painted it black with acrylic and the shadow box was ready......once I had the box ready..... I stuck the backside with Papericious designer paper, picked the floral paper which was along with the paper pack and fussy cut them and adhered it on top and the below sides for a 3 Dimensional effect....... I water coloured the couple and fussy cut them too and adhered everything within the box....


Finally  I picked the coordinating chippies from the same collection and heat embossed with Ranger Gold embossing powder and adhered them all inside the box and finally stuck the backside of the frame and the glass in the front.

Violaaaaa.......the Amor De turned out lovely 😍

I have the after completion close up shots for you all......
