And now for the rest of the story.....

Remember, I said I had been busy...Here's the proof:
I made some more of those shadow boxes, in different sizes....
The top one on the right, I 'aged' by giving it a wash with watered down brown paint.
The one on the top left has been covered with a base coat.....haven't figured out what color it wants to be, yet. I like the smaller ones, wonder what I could put in those??

Then I felt the need to make some smaller birdhouses.......haven't decided if these want to be painted or stained? (*Thanks Mercedes for suggesting a easier way to make the hole~ my suggestion.....make sure you use a sharp pencil! LOL!!)

I played around with an idea for a picture frame...I took a scrapbooking frame and added 2 metal corners....then painted it with a coat of gesso before I painted it pink.....not to sure where I'm going with this, but I thought it was a good start.

Let's see.......I found a home for the 2 birdhouses I made, although they both might not permanently stay. I also put the first little pink chair I made in here.

The second chair is in a state of hasn't made up its' mind on whether or not it likes the material......maybe it's the color of the chair that needs to be changed? .......Oh, I even made a little bookcase to go along with it.....Like I said, I just need to get the colors right.

Here's a close up of the material on the chair.......Maybe I should paint the chair yellow.....

....what do you think?

I think a nice pale mossy green would go well with the flowers and help them stand out. It would then be able to go in many different coloured settings.

I think you're onto something with the green:)

Pink and green together are one of my favourite colour combinations. Absolutley love your little shadow boxes. I was at the beach in the weekend and found some of the world smallest shells. I want to try and make one like your shell one but don't know if I have the patience yet!
