Farmhouse Love ATC Shadowbox

Maya Road | Maya Road

 Last summer Maya Road came out with their first shadowbox which I instantly fell in love with.

I was equally excited when I found out they were coming out with a new shadowbox with ATC size cubbyholes for CHA-W 2011.  This opens up so many possibilities plus gives a bunch of my ATC sized products a new life (think October Afternoon Wild Cards)!

I created this Farmhouse Style Shadowbox using some of my favorite vintage odds and ends.  My hoarding collecting has left me with lots of little pieces that are perfect for the cubbies. 

There really was no rhyme or reason behind this box, I just gathered pieces that I liked and worked them into the box.  Sometimes I just like to create and not follow a theme but follow more of a mood or a style.  This project is definitely a farmhouse type of look. 

I used Helmar 450 glue to adhere all the papers and all the embellishments to the box.  This glue is perfect for holding up heavy embellishments which is important when creating a shadowbox.  You must have good, strong adhesive.

I added a little drawer pull to the top to add some height and am now tempted to add some little hooks to the back so I can hang it on the wall also. 

There is one more new Maya Road product on here.....but you didn't hear that from me. Nope not me.  ;)

Have a wonderful Day and do something creative if you get a chance!
