The Learning Curve

 Hi Ya'll...
At Paper Issues our theme this month is : The Learning Curve..
A few weeks ago I was at the dollar tree store. I found these little wooden shadow boxes, (aproximately 9x9)- unpainted. I wasnt sure what I would do with them until today.  I dug through my stash of oldies but goodies Using some pebbles inc stickers, stemma apoxy stickers. gave it a bright red base paint then stained it a bit with brown ink. I ended up making the chalk by rolling white paper tightly. I also made the little books on the shelves.. Most of the papers are scraps left over. I love to go through my old stash and use what I have..I find that sometimes I get the best ideas that way. (I just adore these little books I made) I never got into the doll house hobby but I can see how it would be addictive.. The ribbons are just ribbon scraps left over.. I did use some Mod Podge and ruler ribbon and fabric around the frame.  Wouldnt this be a great teacher gift?  Thanks for stopping by today..Don't forget to head over to Paper Issues and see what the Design team has been doing!!!
