Shadow box by Suzanne Sergi using Stationery Noted

Happy Wednesday! Suzanne here with a shadowbox frame featuring Stationery Noted. This is one of my favorite collections. From the quotes, to the chipboard elements, and to the paper flowers, this is perfect for the everyday. 

I have had this shadowbox in my stash for awhile, and thought it was perfect for creating an inspiration home decor item. I first painted the shadowbox with white acrylic paint, and then began building the individual windows. I started with selecting my favorite quote on the Quotes 12x12. I covered it with diamond dust, as I always love a touch of glitter! Then I decided what papers to use for the inside of the windows. Primarily, I pulled from the Polaroid 12x12 paper to use for the openings. Off to the left I used part of the Ledgers 12x12 to completely cover the right hand side windows.

Here you can see I used some of the paper flowers from the collection. I embellished the center with a damask that was found on one of the quotes. I simply punched it using a scallop punch, and covered it in glitter.  I also stamped the middle of the canvas butterfly using an older Teresa Collins stamp set. Covered the center of the butterfly with a chipboard element from the Stationery Noted. I added a bit more of detail using a small tag, and metal clip.

I stamped the word par avion using the Stationery Noted stamp set underneath the owl.  I added more Teresa Collins bling, and a chipboard button for the center. Off to the right,  I cut apart a quote found on a small ticket, and embellished above with a punched butterfly. I added a bit of ribbon to the top of the paper. 

One last detail of the windows. I really love all the bits, and pieces found throughout this shadowbox. An item that will serve as inspiration for yourself, or someone special to you! Thanks for stopping by, and see you back here tomorrow!
