I thought a fun way to decorate the box would be to use one of the Make it Crafty scenes to take up the interior. I used Hollywood Sidewalk and paired it with a Simply Betty image called Lady Lola; you might remember Simply Betty and Make it Crafty did a collaborative Hollywood release earlier in the year.
To create the shadow box, first I painted all of the chipboard white to give it a nice soft look, and then I traced the outer frame onto some DP. I then cut it out, distressed and painted the edges so it wasn't perfect and stuck it on top of the chipboard frame. Distressing the edges just allowed me to be a little more rough in the sizing as I didn't want it to look 100% fitted, but rather more of that shabby chic look. To be honest, I'm not 100% sold ont he red in the picture...but hey it's Hollywood right? ;)
This was a fun scene to colour up. Here are the copics that I used:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R11
Hair: E11, E13, E15, E18
Dress: BG72, BG75, BG78
Hat/Building: E40, E41, E43
Sidewalk: W0, W1, W3, W5, W7
Red: R22, R29, R46, R59
