Good Morning Creatives!
Today I am sharing with you a fun and funky little shadow box I made using my Gel Press plates and Gel Press Impressables Overlapping Circles.
I had so much fun making this. I love mixing together bright colors and steampunk elements.
For this project I started with this amazing print I had in my stash:
I wanted to bring out the lesser used colors, so I decided to make my box in purple, turquoise and lime green.
Using a 6×6 Gel Plate as a palette, I brayered my teal and purple across it and then used my Impressables Overlapping Circles to make impressions. Then I pressed my wooden shadow box into it. I repeated these steps until I had covered my entire box, including the sides.
After cleaning my plate off by pulling a print, I added a lime green paint to my plate and again, stamped my Overlapping Circle Impressables plate into my paint. I then used my Impressables as a stamp on my shadowbox.
To finish up my shadowbox, I added loads of fun metal embellishments.
Here is some closeups!
I LOVE how the bubble wrap I used gives my inset piece a perfect, uniform circular background.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project!! It was really fun to make and I hope it inspires you to go a little crazy!
Until next time,
