what WAS on my table

Well, I did it.  I finally finished a new re-furbished item to list in my Etsy shop.  Take a look at it from last week....
I love thrift stores and estate sales, and a while back I found this seashell picture and this metal and glass angel.  So I brought them home with me, and put them on the back burner of my mind, to stew awhile. 

Then last Thursday, I had a vision of what I wanted to do, so I ran away from home, and chores, right to my art studio.  I got out my paint, glitter, and craft knives to bring my idea to life.  I finished the seashell shadow box today.  The angel is still stewing.  This is now my newest listing in our Etsy shop...
I painted the outside and trim a soft cream and the inside of the boxes a bright white to make them pop.  And then sprinkled on some glitter, cuz glitter is good, lol.  I chose to paint the outside frame a soft sea blue to match the background, and then whitewashed it to give it that beachy look.
Hung alone on a wall, or placed on a shelf, this is the perfect accent to get you ready for summer!
