Challenge time again......D

Hello everyone, so pleased you have dropped by to peek at my blog.

It is challenge time again over at Eclectic Ellapu.  This weeks challenge is hosted by our wonderful Sheena and the theme she has chosen is


I decided to alter a frame and a box for this challenge.  I mixed up some grey and cream acrylic paint and I added lots of gold glamour dust to it.  Trouble is the glitter in the paint is not all that visible in the pics.  I used a sponge technique using pink over the grey.  

The final layer is a generous covering of varnish.  

I trimmed the frame and box with lace, pearls and ribbon from my stash.  The pearls were individually placed so took a while to complete lol. 

Well that was a quick description - believe me they took a lot longer to make lol.

Hope you liked my projects this time and I hope you pop over to Eclectic Ellapu to join in with the fun.
