Good morning everyone, this is Mona again with another project.  I have to say this is my all time favourite project I ever created.  I had so much fun doing this project that I am thinking other themes for upcoming, project close to this one.

 I first started with a wooden canvas and used the back of it to create a shadow box type of frame.

 Here is where I went in garage to get scraps of wood and gotten cut to create my frame and window box... this project was inspired by Tim Holtz window die ... that's what inspired me to create the window but on a much larger scale.

 After having everything cut out .. I used Americana walnut acrylic paint for the frame and flower box . The top and bottom of window and the flower box I decided to keep it dark brown, but the frame I added a good coat of crackle medium let it dry, then added a coat of white Americana paint.  I Love how the crackle came out.   Next I adhered down a piece of turquoise burlap in the background of my window with a good coat of modpodge. The burlap came from a Canvas Corp Value Pack that was gifted to me by my friend Deb.

Next came the fun part choosing images and elements for my window, I used two different stamp sets from Art Impressions which I paper pieced, colored with copics and added a bit of glossy accent to give it a more realistic look.

I played around with my images and changed them spot , had furniture cut out of paper then back in garage to get them cut in wood to give it a more dimension look,, mini library top left corner and table bottom right  which I then painted. I used a mini stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop coloring and fussy cutting cupcakes and coffee cups to add on the table.

For the finishing touch cut out a few wood blocks to make mini books for the library used different colours of paint and distress the edges of the book with black sooth distress ink then added a few lines on the spine of the book to give it a more realistic look.

My final step was just adding the finishing touches.  I added distress in on the edge of my window frame this time using vintage photo.  Made a sign using a stamp set from Technique Tuesday called Besties popped up the sign using pop dots,  behind the table. I then added moss in my flower box and made a flower arrangements using flowers from my stash and for the final touch a little sign where I wrote Happy Spring. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and hope to see you again soo. Happy Crafting Everyone!
