Memory box 2

 This was a easter box I got in The Works.
 First I sanded the whole thing then gave it 2 coats of white acrylic paint then while still wet 
I added 2 lilacs 1 light and 1 dark i gave it a quick coat of the light,
then dabed the dark in the wet,
 Then played with it till i was hapy with the look and while still wet i used a thin brush and added gold 
to give a marble look,
To do this hold brush at end and twerl and flick dont be precise,


 Then left to dry i added some lilac ribbon around the edge of the lid and a bow on top i got a tag and coloured it darker than the lid and made a small bow for this,
I then added some flowers a fether and a large butterfly 
all with silcone and to finish i glazed the base and parts of the lid then while wet sprickled iredesent glitter on to finish.

Hope you all like, thanks for stopping by.

Trying some thing new

 As you can see this was a ted baker box 
I have seen loads of pepole doing boxes so i thought i would try.
i sanded the box.
 Then painted it gold with enamel pain wich i found peals so it gave a great 
distress look,

 Then i added a bit of lace round the edge of the lid 
Then i made 3 ribbon flowers i was given the silver star and fram by a great friend Angie 
Then a large fether and a few buttons.

 And a lilly and a sticker saying hearloom. and a bit of lace for top,
Then a big button for center. 
I am calling this a memory Box for some one lost.
