Sunshine Shadowbox for Scraps of Elegance and Gina's Designs

hi! Ever get a line from a song stuck in your head that you can't get rid of no matter what? Lynne here with a shadowbox project inspired by one of those lines (some people call it an "earworm" when that happens, but that expression kind of creeps me out, as I'm not a huge fan of slithery things!)

I used the lovely June Scraps of Elegance kit, "Stephanie's Treasure" for this project-the sunny colours of the papers and florals inspired me.
The pretty chipboard shadowbox and other pieces are from Gina's Designs; the sun I covered with coordinating paper and inked the edges. The bird piece was  dry-embossed, then painted and inked it to add dimensional colour. The lattice heart and small flourish were painted with acrylic paints.

 The fussy-cut butterflies and bright florals added to the theme; the adorable glass squirrels are just a personal touch by "Scrappy Squirrel"!! The cheesecloth made me think of floating clouds and the song lyrics just plain make me happy! Have yourself a happy, sunshiny day, and thanks heaps for stopping by!
