Shadow Box

When a friend of mine asked me to make a shadow box for her son I was super excited. I had never made one before but I assumed that it wouldn’t be too different from a picture frame. And it wasn’t! Just needed more depth behind the glass and the shadow box was done!

Merry Christmas!

It is a little too late, but better late than never right?

Here are a few frames that I packed and sent on their way just a couple of days before Christmas.

The weird angle of photography on the second frame is cause no setting on the camera seemed to be able to capture the actual colours and beauty of the fabric.

On the Button

I’ve always loved buttons and have found a ton of cute button designs on the web. Since a friend asked me to create a frame for her and left the choice completely to me, I thought I’d  experiment with buttons. Here it is!

Over the past week I had to come up with picture frames for two brothers - one in college and the other working. One brother plays the guitar while the other plays the drums.

What do I make for big boys? You can never go wrong with black right? And white? So I came up with these. A 3-D guitar frame and a silhouette drums frame.

My Pretty Little Snowflake

I have always felt a little strange about decorating with snowflakes. Seriously... snowflakes in Chennai?

But I couldn't resist these plastic ones that were selling at Rs. 20 for three at a store near our home. And they don't look as dreadful as I feared they would.

I then remembered that I had actually made a couple of snowflakes last year that I thought were really pretty. So who am I to criticize?

These were super easy to make. I just bought some stones (I really don't know what those things are called) and stuck them on a transparent plastic sheet (used to cover text books) and cut the plastic to shape. Then I outlined the design with silver sparkle glue and let it dry.

It so makes me want to sing Jim Revees' snowflake song.

Something Blue

Finally I got to work on something not pink! A friend's baby boy was born last week and I knew I had to use this opportunity and make that evasive blue picture frame. Another first Christmas ornament, but for a baby boy!
