MAKE IT MONDAY Project: MDS Shadow Box Photo Frame

Hello Crafters...

The finished project hanging in my living room.
I have fallen in love with Stampin' Up!'s MDS. An new straight away that I would be able to pick up my love of scrapbooking again. Since the age of digital photos I have done very little in the way of scrapbooking as I never seem to get my pics printed. Im excited that i can create a virtual page and just go straight to my photo library on my computer and just add the pics right there and then. I can also edit them by cropping, recolouring, resizing etc.

This is how it appears on the computer screen.

I printed 3 copies on 12x12" Whisper White Card Stock on an A3 printer. Using one of the copies as the background and using the other  2 copies to cut out elements. I attached them with Stampin' Dimensionals to lift the images off the page giving a 3D look. I also added Pearl Basic Jewels and a large white Brad (retired stock).

 I cut the bunting out and instead of place directly over the top as I did with the word SON I placed it in a different direction which also helped with the 3D look.

I also cut out a few of the picture windows and lifted them. I think this is a very fitting memorial for my son, I wanted to reconise that he was so much to so many people and not just a son was lost but a Step Son, Brother, Step Brother, Nephew, Friend etc . It'll be a year on the 24th Feb 2014 and not a day goes by that I don't miss him.
