We have shells. Lots of shells. I collect shells, Jeff collected shells on his world travels and we were given his aunt’s collection when she passed away.

I wanted to display some of the sea fans we had received.  I created some shadow boxes with scrap pieces and some weathered pieces of sand fence from Cape Cod.

With ephemera I’ve been collecting (yes, sadly, I have a lot of ‘stuff’ collected)  I created several shadow boxes to hang.  Items I used include Scrabble tiles, vintage stamps, shells and sea glass i collected, and various decorative papers, along with the sea fans.


Jeff stitched them together in photoshop so they look like they are all one, but are actually three separate 6 x 12 inch pictures.

I love the way they turned out.
