"My two favorite crafting techniques are fussy cutting and layering and I have combined a little of both in this shadow box.

It is very relaxing for me to fussy cut, I can spend hours and hours doing it! Then I love to play with the little pieces and try to create a scene with dimension and depth.

Shadow boxes are ideal to try these techniques, they give a proper and delimited space to create different compositions, and they are more versatile than you might think. This is an example of that using a shadow box to decorate an album cover. " ~ Marina BlauKitchen

Tips:

  • Use the scissors you feel most comfortable with. Fussy cut should be a pleasure, not a martyr! Try different scissors until you find “the ones made for you”.
  • Cut apart the piece you want to fussy cut, then try to move the paper instead the scissors while cutting.
  • I recommend using a precision cutter(x-acto knife) to cut small spaces inside the piece you are cutting.
  • Layering is a very interesting and entertaining technique. Try more than one possibility before making a final decision for your design.
  • Add cardstock or cardboard little pieces to raise the figures and make them stand out from the other figures and from the background.
