Assembling nature

Getting ready for my workshop next week, I found these shadow box frames on sale at Michaels a couple of weeks ago. Perfect for the ladies to assemble their treasures in.

Everything fits in just nicely.

Looking back at photos I took during the process, I see that I also happen to like this. I had laid the collage on top of a piece of scrapbooking paper while I took the picture. I think I do like that too, as a larger border around the collage and then maybe put in a larger frame. So...for another time.

I think some people will have seashells and that is something that I have an abundance of, so just started playing around with them here. These came out of a box that I collected in the east coast, many years ago before I was married. Oh, and one of my mother's Cracker Jack prizes - a little heart with a ship engraved on it. I'll probably wire it on at the end.
