For my project, I made this sweet little shadow box for my Mom. Back in the 40's, Gene Autry was the "singing cowboy movie star" that everyone loved! My Mom still likes to tell the story about the day she and her sister got to meet him and have their picture taken with him. This is such a treasured photo to her, I knew she would love this remembrance of that special day.
To start, I gave the shadowbox a light coat of white paint. After it dried, I sanded it just a bit so some of the original brown color would show through. I cut the burlap square to fit, and hot glued it inside the shadowbox. Next I stitched around both canvas stars with embroidery floss. I then added the red canvas flower, a canvas star, a denim roly rosie and an i-top button covered with burlap. I hot glued the rope and the other canvas star before adding the photo. I finished by adding journaling strips.
