Vintage Shadow Box

There are a ton of photos I came at this from a lot of angles.
Okay, I dont usually make stuff for myself, I really get into what I am making but I usually just give it away when I am done. But this I knew from the beginning was mine. I had some hoarded items that I just couldnt put on just anything. So when hubby brought this home, I knew where I could add them. I used prima papers and I made most of the flowers. I added papers to the back of glass beads. I just really had fun. I distressed it with paint and inks and distressed all the papers before adding them. 
Enjoy the picture show.
