Window Shadow Box

Hello Beauties!
I have designed a new template! This window is so versatile. You can decorate this in so many different ways. You can put one picture or four pictures in the window. Also you can make it so you are looking in like I did or leave the shutters off and add curtains so it is like looking out the window. Now I decided to make my window in a shabby chic style. What I did to get this look is first paint the window brown. Then add crackle medium and let that dry ( I cheated and dried it with my heat gun) and lastly I painted it with vintage white craft paint. After the window was dry, I used Tim Holtz distress inks in Weathered wood and vintage photo. Just lightly distress with a distress tool. The flowers I used on the shutters are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I colored them with Lindy's. Now inside the window I used the Country Estate paper from Webster Pages ( available in the store). I also used a book page that I distressed with Tattered Rose, Vintage photo and Old Paper distress inks. The heart charm I made with the vellum sheet from the Country Estate collection and a metal heart frame that I used gold rub and buff on it. I used half of a Frogfeatheres flower and 3 buttons. The lace I used for the valance I tea dyed and the girl image is from Google Images. I saw the image and thought she was so sweet and she looked like she was daydreaming! Here are a few more pictures....
I just love how the window turned out! If you want to make one just click on the tab above that reads " Template" and you can purchase this template.  Also the measurements are listed in the store underneath the pictures.
Have a great week!
