Below is the sample that I have created for this month's challenge.
"Winter Fairy Shadowbox"

The base of my project began with an unfinished 5 x 7 shadowbox that I purchased at Hobby Lobby.  I initially painted it dark green, but then covered it up with thick white gesso that I dabbed on for lots of texture.  I used my finger to cover the edges with texture paste, and then sprinkled it with glitter.  I did the same with the chipboard icicles.  I papered the inside with digital design paper by Gecko Galz, then added chipboard snowflakes that I embossed with shabby white embossing powder.  I printed the gorgeous fairy from the Gecko Galz Blue Christmas digital kit, dabbed on a little Mod Podge, and added some glitter.  I hot glued some tiny wooden spools to the back of the fairy and then glued her to the back of the box to add dimension.  I glued in some white bloomer trim, and added other embellishments I had in my Christmas stash.  Thanks for looking!
