Well Its been a super busy month and it seems like I have not touched base in a while. Tonight I am going to share two projects I have done lately. The first project I made was for Debbies 16th birthday, I filled it up will lots of bling and other girly stuff for her. This started out as a flax looking old box. I added a layer of gesso, then some papers, not happy with the effect I was trying for I added a layer of crackle paint, followed by paint. Once it was dried I added inks and then sealed it. I then had lots of fun adding embellishments. I really do love the FLOURISH WITH A BLING, Chloe Pearl Flourish, Antique Gold. I actually cut them up to fit my project, but not wanting to waste any of the stunning bling I found the perfect place for them on the side 🙂
You can see the effect of the crackle paint here and how I blended in some inks.
This is where I found the perfect place for the bits of bling I did not need on the top. I have cut them again so the box opens nicely
I love how with all the layers and inks it has given it that really old vintage distress look, and I hope Debbie will treasure it.
Now this next project is a little different for me, I’m trying to play round with bright colors, and hopefully soon I will be happy with what I do. I do really like this layout, The color to me shows the kids bubbly, cheeky cuddly nature. For this layout I have added FLOURISH WITH A BLING Grace Pearl Flourish Pink
Again I have cut them up to use in different parts of my layout. This pink is such a pretty color and I can see I am going to be using some on Ruby’s baby photos
