Welcome! I can’t seem to stay away from Harry Potter, not that I am complaining. Today, I have created a new project for all you Harry Potter fans – a tribute shadowbox. I am considering making these available for sale down the road. I am also working on a teacher appreciation shadow box which should be done soon.
I created this project using my Silhouette Cameo and Silhouette Studio Design Edition Software. I used only white cardstock as my base and then a ton of different tools to create the different looks.
I wish I had taken a photo of my desk when I was done, it looked like a craft bomb had gone off. I did my best to write down all of the supplies and I will list those at the end. This was so much fun to create and I had way more ideas than would fit in this 8″x10″ frame. Hedwig is my very favorite.
I used a lot of misting sprays and embossing powders, distress ink, Glossy Accents and PearlEx powders to pull this Harry Potter Shadowbox together.
I love how the Dobby element turned out. This was cut with my Silhouette Cameo and then the background was misted with a variety of Glimmer Mists from Tattered Angels.
I reused the stag shape I created for my Always Painting. The stage and back frame were colored with Distress Stain and the blue mat was colored with more color mists.
Above you can see Hedwig and a glimpse of the wand. Hedwig was my favorite element. I added a little Glossy Accents to her eyes.
The Hogwarts quote panel was created with Distress Inks, Pearl Ex Powders and Distress Stain. The Harry panel was also created with Distress Stain, Distress Inks, and Distress Marker. The back mat was created with Embossing Powder. The Deathly Hallows Panel was done with Glimmer Mist and Silver Embossing Powder.
Overall I am happy with how this latest project turned out. I am looking forward to creating and sharing more! As always, thank you for your time!
