Altered Window Shadowbox for Graphic 45

With this piece I wanted to create a sort of pretty window, maybe something you’d stumble upon in an abandoned cottage, maybe something you’d find in an old gardeners home.

I’d imagine those small bottles to be filled with seeds and essential oils. The labels on these vials are various stickers from the Time to Flourish collection.

I’ve sandwiched some elements between the provided layers of vinyl which gives an wonderful ‘floating’ effect.

Nichola used our Time to Flourish Tags & Pockets to add beautiful details to his altered window frame #graphic45

You’ll notice that I’ve placed the window box on a stand (which is simply a rectangle of cut thick masonite). This creates a more stable base and allows me to add these fabulous claw feet! 

Nichola used our Claw Feet Staples and Ornate Metal Keys and Keyholes to give this altered Time to Flourish window so much personality! #graphic45
