Shadow Box Part 3

I did a bit more work on my shadow box. I decided not to do a blanket stitch on the edge, but a vey close overcast stitch instead. I added a few French knots along the stem. Now I will cover the box with this paper you see here...but not today.

A Shadow Box

Kicking around a idea for a new shadow box. Right now I'm in the collecting stage...beads, threads, colors. I've purchased the paper I will cover the boxes with...has sweet little birds all over. I've made the taffeta hearts. This was the time I used the Clover yo-yo heart maker and it does work. I will stamp a word, to be determined, onto the twill tape, but I think I'll tea dye it first. The background fabric is a primitive white which has little flecks of darkness in it. I want the piece to look old.
