Shadow Box Key Holder by Sunila & Aditi


Hope you are all well! Sunila and Aditi here with a mixed media home decor project. 

While we were brainstorming what to create (since we've done too many trays, and coasters and all those things), we found a box at home. This is supposed to be a napkin holder, however, we decided to create something else. 

We changed the position a bit and decided to turn it into a shadow box and create a key holder. The idea of the shadow box seemed useful because that space can hold bills, posts, and anything else that we'd like apart from the keys. An easy solution that can be hung by the door. 

Here's a look at our final piece:

We were inspired to use our new nature theme stencils for this project. That made it easy to choose our color palette and create a little garden of sorts. 

If you'd like to create one for your home, here's the video tutorial:

This project involves layering stencils with texture pastes and stenciled focal elements. We've used the following stencils- L736 Leafy Doodle Border by Valerie Sjodin , L712 Lattice Medallion by Kristie Taylor, S482 Bare Branch Thicket by Trish McKinney; all these are in keeping with our nature theme. 

Here are a few close-ups:
