Right "Off the page" and at my front door

I wanted a sign at my front door to remind people to take their shoes off....You can not see the shimmer or glitter but it sparkles.

AWESOME challenge over at Frosted Designs go over and sign up, you have to check this blog out. The prize is so worth giving it a go.

I used a canvas and turned it backwards and made it into a shadow box. I painted the "Welcome" sign with Kaiser paint, called  MUD PUDDLE, I then put a layer of crackle accents from Ranger and I painted the inside of the frame with Kaiser paint called SLATE. The flowers I used were Prima flowers. The house was done up in Glimmer Mist (coffee I think) and Olive glimmer mist for the tree, with of course Glossy Accents.

And yes it is a real twig from outside under my tree.

Now for my tip: I cut up a coke can and embossed a square with my cuttlebug and then put Caramel Alcohol Ink on it, and left it over night, this gives it a rusty look.

This is fabulous!! How clever are you to flip the canvas and use the backside! I love the way it has the look of a shadow box! Thanks for taking on our paint challenge at frosted designs this week!
