Happy Friday!  My shadow box is slowly coming together and I can't wait to start filling in the cubbies.

I finished off the frame with a couple coats of water based varnish and then began assembling the background.
 I used a re-positionable glue pen to place the paper  on the background.  This was necessary as I had to place the paper on the background then place the wood over the top to make sure everything was covered.

I marked the edge with a pencil.

Then attached the paper with Mod Podge.

Once all the paper was adhered, I covered the entire thing with two more layers of Mod Podge.

I am really lovin' how this is turning out.  I wasn't so sure I could do it at first but I am glad I jumped in! I realized I forgot to paint the bottom - oops! So, I will have to do that next and maybe some PP on the sides.

Have a super weekend!
