I made this shadow box with my little boy. We tried to include bits and pieces of the things we think embody summer: the lake, the park, the fair, going places and lots of sunshine. He wanted me to put one of his little matchbox cars in the box. We chose the white convertible because it seemed most like summer.
We used a Tim Holtz configurations box, painted it white with acrylics, then added mists and a coat of crackle paint. It was really quick and easy to do, even with "help" from my child. The embellies are all fun stickers from Echo Park. Design Team work for the Scrappy Chic Cafe.
