SHADOW BOX NAMEPLATE

Moving into a new apartment provides one with many opportunities to explore one’s artistic skills, to try out hands at newer and different things. So for the past few weeks I have been focussing on certain parts of the house which I felt needed my attention . I went about cleaning, organising and decorating every corner with scope of improvement. After having done that I realised that the sweet little home that I am working on does not have a nameplate on the door, so nobody knows who this cute little house belongs to hahahaha..

I was musing over the design of it when I received a cute little package from Itsy Bitsy and that contained such pretty flowers I cannot begin to explain. Actually I don’t need to, since the beauty of these flowers is evident from the pictures. The moment I saw them I knew what I wanted to do and how I wanted to design my nameplate.

I had a few other accessories from the same store like the Burlap Sheets and Handmade Sheets which I have layered over to add some color. The reason I used handmade sheets on top of burlap was to basically help pop out the printed letters on top. Using handmade paper instead of normal  cardstock helps maintain the texture and roughness which was brought into by the use of burlap. So the intension was not to keep it all glossy and finished looking instead a little on the rustic side.

The flowers added are also made out of the same handmade paper which complimented the overall look. Now keeping the background plain and the frame printed was again pre-decided and something I felt was unusually done.

Coming to the frame /shadow box whatever one may choose to call it, is also hand crafted by me. It has two layers of paper one being a thick white sheet reinforced with the use of thick printed designer sheet on the sides which is the part that is basically visible from the front.

All in all I am pretty happy with how it turned out. Hope you all like it too..cyaaa..
