Altered box.................D

Hello everyone

I decided to put together shabby chic style.  I love this style but find it extremely difficult to stay away from the dark colours and themes lol.  So there you go - I really struggle!

I used a box from Crafty-Emblies.  I painted it a dark green then crackled over top with a lighter shade of green.  For the lid I used a lot of random flowers from my stash.  Not used flowers for the longest time - well it seems that way lol.  

For the inside I used allsorts of Crafty-Emblies for a sewing room theme.  

Now this is a jewellery box and it wouldn't do for your bits and bobs to get all caught up in the decor inside.  So what I did was cut out some acetate to suspend over the top of my little scene.  I used silicone all round the middle of the depth and then simply laid the acetate on the ridge.  I then used glossy accents all round the edge to seal it. I have added a pic of a chain sitting on the acetate to show it exists but not sure it works!

  I laid lace over the edge to decorate the inside and out.   

I do hope you like this project.  Why not head on over to Crafty-Emblies and buy loads of goodies lol

Thats it for me right now and see you all soon.
Happy Crafting!
