And here are the pictures to prove it. Clicking on a picture will take you to a bigger photo in my family album; clicking on that picture will open a larger photo.
The picture I chose. One of my sunset photos.
Trimming the photo to fit
Starting assembly of the shadowbox
The back side of the box. I learned that if I use white paper for the outside piece, to color the edges, otherwise you can see the white when the box is finished.
The front piece glued on - this hides the corners
I used a blue marker to try to make the white not look so bad (probably no one would notice it but me)
The finished box/frame - I like it!
My photo wall. Brian said I could paint the room! Any color I wanted! Except pink, purple, red...I'll probably go with some shade of grey.
Turned out nice, huh?
