Reverse Stretched Canvas Shadowbox Tutorial

8 x 8 Stretched Canvas Turned Into A Shadowbox
 A couple of months ago I made a reverse canvas shadowbox for a photograph taken at my grandparent's house in 1968.  That post is here, if you would like to see it.  At the time I knew that the only other photograph I have from that era would be given a similar scrapbooking treatment.  The pair of shadowboxes are now ready to be hung.

Embellishments include CTMH's Timeless Metal Charms and Prima's Chipboard
 Here is a video tutorial showing how I made this project:

 The photo below shows the journaling pocket on the back of the canvas on the post from March 4, 2012.  The pocket is less deep than the 3M Command Strips.  This allows the journaling cards to easily be removed while the shadowbox is hanging on the wall.
