Creative Boxing!

Over at Hels blog the theme for this weeks Sunday Stamper is Bits 'n' Pieces
Seeing as I never know when to stop embellishing i thought this was the perfect challenge for me.
I decided to convert an old box frame and make it into a shadow box by removing the glass and backboard and then adding a piece of mountboard to the very back of the frame.
As you can see there are a fair few bits AND pieces on this one lol {click pic for a closer look}
The mini mdf lettering was painted then distressed and stuck to the base of the frame.
I actually decorated the mountboard backplate before attaching it to the frame with an assortment of goodies from TSS metal and terra to gears, metal buttons and tags.
Now all i need to do is figure if i want it freestanding as it is or wether to add some sort of hanging application so it can adorne my wall!

Whattcha Think??

Ooh! I'd put it on the wall and admire it! :) I don't have any shadow boxes but I'm thinking I might be able to rustle something up using chipboard perhaps? You've inspired me!

Fun piece! Hanging it up will mean you get to use the shelf space it would have taken to store more stash so I'd go for the hanging option ;o)
