"Treasure" Shadowbox
by Elena Martynova

Hi dear friends!
It's Elena Martynova here today and I'm so excited 
to share my new project.
For our blog, I made such an interior thing - a shadowbox "Treasure".

I wanted to dive into the world of mixed-media, and play with colors and textures.
In addition, the blank for the shadowbox has been lying around for several years.

I made two doors - top and bottom and immediately there 
was a mystery - what is hidden behind them?
I decorated them with chipboard elements and small metal handles.

Let's open the top door first.

I put a picture of a lady in a frame here. Perhaps it was she who owned
these treasures, who knows... We also find two letters from the game Scrabble A and K.
It's probably her initials.

I used a mould by Finnabair to make these wonderful decorative elements.

Let's skip the Central part for now and open the lower door.
It hides three light bulbs, a clock chip on a metal flower, and three more letters.

In the Central part you will see an inscription with the name of the shadowbox, 
I also added some metal jewelry and a glass bottle filled with microbeads.
I took 7 DOTs Studio paper for the background.

I was glad to inspire you today! See you soon, bye-bye!
