Jewellery Box

Good Afternoon Crafters

How are you all this cold Saturday afternoon?

At the moment we have rain, we have had hail and bright sunshine, it just doesn't know what to do, but it sure is chilly.

Today I am sharing a wooden Jewellery box I have altered.

I gave the box a coat of white Gesso and then a coat of pale dusky pink. Once dry I added a coat of crackle paint and then a coat of cream paint. I then dry brushed IndigoBlu Goldfinch metallic paint which highlighted some of the crackle, I wanted a subtle crackle and was pleased how it turn out.
On the front of the door I attached a paper moulding which I painted with goldfinch and add cameo of a flower.

As you can see the subtle crackle on the inside.
I decorated the sides and draw with flower lace from Gone Artsy and added pink gems to the centre.

On the top of the box I added a small tiara and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts which have been dry brushed with gold metallic paint.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Vintage Journey - Cracking up
Creative Artiste - AG Mixed Media
Creative Moments #101 - Always Anything Goes
Inspiration Destination #112 - Anything Goes

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
