Its been a while since I've got out my Copics and Molly Blooms stamps but had a really chillaxing time earlier this week getting creative molly blooms style with one of the Candy Box Crafts shadow boxes. I used the 6 1/2" one to showcase this country scene of Molly on a picnic. Once I'd chosen the papers I wanted to use, and the colours for the images all I had to do was a bit of colouring in. I'd forgotten how time flies when your colouring and how long it takes. There's over 35 elements in the picture some large and some tiny weeny like the cherries and strawbs! I started layering from the back of the box and used small chipboard squares stuck together in stacks to support each of the pieces, increasing the number used in each stack as I built up the scene. It was a great project to work on and one that would make a pretty picture for a little girls bedroom.
Here's what the box looked like before I started and some close ups of my finished one too:

I'm off to teach at the ScR@P retreat at Ansty Hall this weekend and really looking forward to seeing all the ladies. Have a safe journey and see you all in the morning.
