Today I'm sharing this sampler in a 6x6inch shadow box frame. I chose this size because it is large enough to allow me to put a number of different items to be interesting but not so large as to be overwhelming. A sampler is good way of using up small scraps of paper so that nothing gets wasted and I wanted to use every little bit of the Come Sail Away DSP!
The frame was very inexpensive - under £3 - and as well as making the sampler, I altered the frame a bit as well. The finished item is going to be on display in our home. Most papercraft projects have a short life, so it makes me happy when I make something that I can keep around for a while!
Here's the video-
In the end, it didn't turn out quite as I'd planned - I was going to stamp the frame with the crackle paint stamp, but it didn't look right with the sampler, so I painted over it and then sponged Soft Suede ink over the edges and I'm very pleased with the result - another happy accident!
