I hope you have a had a good week and that you have something nice planned for the weekend. We will mostly catching up with jobs around the house and garden.
The first Friday in the month see the start of a new challenge on the Creative Artiste Challenge blog the theme is Anything Goes and the sponsor is The Dusty Attic.
I had had this little heart shaped box in my stash for ages. I was given it free when I bought some jewellery as a leaving present.
I started painting the box all over with Gesso. It isn't necessary to do this but it does make the colours of the tissue paper brighter. Then I decoupaged the box with cut up tissue paper and decoupage glue applied with a brush. The lace was in my stash.
The Dusty Attic are based in Australia and they make laser cut creations and embellishments. They will ship overseas. If you click on the logo you will be taken to the store.
I made the flower with the Spellbinders Build a Sunflower die set. I used Distress inks to colour the petals. The doily was created with another Spellbinder die. The butterfly was made with a Sue Wilson die.
I was very pleased with how this box turned out.
I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.
I would like to enter Challenge 42 at the Crafting Musketeers Challenge Blog , Challenge 27 at Craft Girls Creations and Challenge 29 at the Crafting with Friends Challenge Blog.
