Memory Box by Joanne Wardle
Joanne altered a Square Shadow Box to make this baby Memory Box to hold objects from her youngest son's birth. There is a picture of his feet, a copy of the birth announcement, his hospital band and a champagne cork. To make the Memory Box Joanne painted the lid with acrylic paints (blue and white) with a sponge, then over stamped it with Scrolls Work's Background Words stamp. She then made a lining out of thin white card stamped with background words using pumice stone distress ink. Next Joanne made holes in the top of the box with a crop-a-dile and added string to hang, and finally added some photo corners to hold the photograph.
