Hi everyone, I'm back to show you the project I made for "Lessology". If you haven't heard its a new challenge blog .......which is all about Up cycling.
The Trinket Box Challenge! :) Don't we love having little boxes holding fun little treasure we have? Decorate an existing box or make one from scratch! Remember to include at least ONE upcycled item on your creation!I just love HEART anything.............I've had this box stored in a cupboard for along time, this challenge was the perfect opportunity to give it a new look.
Here is the before picture.
I made the flower using the "Flower Shoppe" cartridge.........can you see the petals are Heart shape too??
I 've used Kaiser paper........the background is "Timeless" and for the flower I used their new collection "Bonjour".
The centre of the flower is a very old earing. I love fairies too, so I added it............and some more pretty Hearts.
Here is a photo to show you how old it is..........
I painted the inside pink.............and hated it. So then I had the idea to paint a crackle medium over it before I changed the colour. I love how it turned out all old looking!
My box will be used to store all my pretty HEART shape trinkets.
This box was one of a set .............I can't wait to cover the rest now!
Hope you like it
Thank you for a great challenge
