Shadow Box

I attended Cynthialoohoo's Ustream yesterday where she made a shadow box. This was my attempt. I have several old blue glass jars it would be a great way to display them in a grouping. That is if I can find some wall space. I love assemblages, and now I know how to make a box. I am always picking up frames at the thrift shops when I see them next to nothing. This was a little unfinished pine one from Ikea.

Thanks Caroline...I ended up putting a rub on decal on the glass. I think it fills the space better. I know I was rub on snob, but we can all change...lol
