"Generations" Shadowbox

Well..this started out as a layout...and eventually to a Shadowbox. Below is the layout before it was put in the shadowbox. The layout was done for one of my Tattered Angels projects for this month.. using
Tattered Angels and Websters Pages (Teamed up for Feb).
(The photo is of my Great Grandma, Grandma, mom and sis.)

I cut and masked alot on this project ..and stitching... yeah.. went a bit nuts with that. lol You can really see it here..but I stitched all around the dress form also. ( my sewing machine was needing repair for some time. I'm fixed.. and I'm really enjoying having it back up and running!)

For the flower.. I started with a regular.. $ store flower... added Glimmer Mist..then cut some paper pieces to add in. I then brushed Glimmer Glam on the tips. I love the effect!

Here it is in the shadowbox .. with the goodies added.

This was a fun project. I got lost it it. and was almost sad when it was time to stop. lol_________________________________________

Another amazing creation!!!! How do you come up with winners time after time? Love all the items you used. The paper was JUST right. Wanted to let you know I am doing a post on my gift from you. THANK YOU so much for sending me THREE set of your die cuts! They are wonderful. I can't wait to get to do something with them. Sorry it has taken awhile to get this posted. I lost my precious Reba last week & I am wiped out. It has taken awhile for me to be able to start back in with blogging. HUGS my friend & thank you again. Charlene
