Glorious Graphic 45 Altered Art Week: Day 2!

Hello Fantastic G45ers!

We are so happy that you are joining us for another fun day of altered art here at Graphic 45! We are having a blast getting to share all of these gorgeous works of altered art from our design team. Today's splendid works were created by the fabulous Jack and Cat Curio! They have made three gorgeous altered shadowboxes that feature our brand new collections Little Darlings, Tropical Travelogue and Olde Curiosity Shoppe. You are going to be amazed by the beauty and stunning detail of these wonderful shadowboxes! So let the fun begin!

We love shadowboxes for so many reasons. You can create splendid works of home decor that have depth an dimension. Each shadow box is like a little world all its own with endless creative potential. And with Graphic 45 papers its easy to create something extraordinary! Just look at this gorgeous Little Darlings shadow box by Jack and Cat Curio. You can see how they layered our beautiful papers to give a real 3-D effect! Just imagine how perfect this would look in a nursery! It's just precious!
