Hi Ann here thought I would show you how I have decorated this Twiddleybitz shadow box.

These are so much fun and so easy to do..They are ATC size and with plenty of dimension so you can really work with layers...something I love to do..

AND the BEST part Ness has them in stock....check them out here

Here is a photo of what I have used for the frame..

Burnt Umber

Sea Breeze

Chromiun Oxide Green

Versa Pinecone

Mica Powder Olive Green

Paint brush

Wet and dry sand paper....glue and Chux.

First read instruction and Assemble ( don't forget to glue )

The first thing is paint the whole box with the Burnt Umber
let dry.

Now using the chux and green paint very small amount straight from the tube rub randomly over the box...let dry then do the same with the Sea Breeze.

When paint is thoroughly dry ... wet the sand paper and rub around until you are happy with the affect.

The top frame

I firstly painted with burnt umber when that was dry using my finger I rubbed some Mica powder olive green very lightly over the top of the burnt umber then the edges with Versa colour pinecone.

So now you are finished and ready to decorate.

Some close ups of how I have done the is very layered but hard to show with photos

the inside is only ATC size.

Hope you enjoyed... Don't miss out head over to the shop now.... click here

Thanks Ann xx
