Altered shadow box

Frilly and Funkie has a Vintage Seaside challenge so I decided to see what I could come up with.
I bought shadowbox frame at Goodwill for $2.00 was all black with a printed  picture and saying.
I took it apart. painted it all cream then added distress inks and stains t get the watery look.
Inside I layers papers, cheese cloth, shells, charms, distress glitter and used lots if mists, stamps and stencils.
I love going to the thrift shops and finding things to revive!

What a gorgeous altered item and the great scene you created. I need to head to thrift shops if there are pieces like this there. Thanks for joining us at Frilly and Funkie.
