I'm not gonna overload you with rambling, on how I did my projects, just posting the projects itself. 
This project is based on the sketch, that comes in the kit. I turned it into a 12# Shadow box.

 I used a string of 20 LED lights for my box. Here it is with the lights on.
(It looks even better at night)

 And some close up's:
I love how the Ferro Croco splatters came out.
