Seaside Memories Shadow Box

“Our memories of the ocean will linger on…” is one of the many themed quotes you will find on the beautiful die cut paper that forms the background of this dimensional project.  Designed to hang on the wall, the shadow box holds a selection of seashells and sandollars along with not one, but two, removable mini albums!   

We will dry emboss and ink the cover of this mini album, which holds up to (8) 2.5" square photos (or you can use some of the pages for journaling).
Bring your index prints and Zip Dry glue to create a fun accent with Tim Holtz's filmstrip ribbon.

This mini shadow box holds a bingo card from Jenn Bowlin and an assortment of can bring your own or sift through my collection.

This album actually sits in the shadow box and fits just behind the mini-shadowbox shown above.

Page 5 and 6.  You can cut the photo for your tag with the Accu-cut in the classroom. You can have pictures on both sides if you wish, or use one side of the tag for journaling.

The lower Jenni Bowlin bingo card actually opens to hold journaling.

Page 9 and 10.  The right side can be made into a pocket page if you wish.  (NOTE: The piece that was torn off the top of the right page, becomes the striped stirp on the edge of page 4.)

The End!
 Techniques include dry embossing, stamping, tearing, and inking.  You will need to bring (1) vertical format 4”x6” print, and  (11) index prints for the actual shadow box.  The mini albums you are creating can be filled later with the photos of your choice. Please bring (1) 4”x6” photo to be die cut for the tag inside the sandcastle.  I will be supplying a selection of seashells, but feel free to bring your own if you wish.
