2018 Fall Shadow Box Insert

2018 Fall Shadow Box Insert

When you love the fall season, you love creating a 2018 Fall Shadow Box Insert for your 12 x 12 frame.  I used Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper together with the coordinating colours in it.  The Tranquil Tide squares are 3-1/8″ and the top layers are 3″ x 3″.  I find that these sizes allow for lots of detail and embellishments to be arranged over them resulting in a colourful home decor piece.

Please ignore the small notch on the bottom edge.  When I’m not sure if I’ll have enough 12″ x 12″ pages for the class, I always make mine with the “less than perfect” sheet!  When the class day arrived, I did have a “perfect” sheet so I could have removed the squares and used it but realized that the notch wouldn’t really show when it was inserted into my frame so I just left it as it was!!
