Sunday Silhouettes

I have had this idea floating around in my mind for a while now since I saw a floating shadow box decoration at Target.  Of course with my luck I could not find floating shadow boxes so I decided to just go with the float frames I found at Michael's.

Here is another view of the finished product.  Oh did I mention just how much of a pain in the butt taking a photo of a floating glass frame is.

  1. I love it. I’ve wanted to do one of those for a long time, but I am so horribly impatient… I’d have to do a smaller one. Great job! You must be really pleased with it. πŸ™‚
