Yayyyyy - Am now a new DT for Rhedd's Creative Spirit F

Yes that's right I am now part of the fabulous DT for Rhedd's Creative Spirit.  Huge thanks to Sandie for taking me on.  For my first DT project I altered a Laughing Cow cheese triangle box.  I altered it to hold my pearls, artificial of course, to sit on my dressing table.

I painted the box initially and then cut out some paper for the lid, inside and out, and for the bottom.  I distressed the edges and wiped brushed TH walnut stain round the edge and over the paper.  I then dripped water over it to give a vintage look.  I then covered it using mod podge to give the entire box a little more robust.  For the edges I used trim from my bits and bobs box (got too many of them lol)  I also found a flower and bow I had made for a previous project which never got finished.  For the flower centre I used glossy accents and added pearl beads and the bow an old button and again pearls.  (scrap box does come in handy lol)  I used cotton reels for the feet - painted with cream acrylic.  I lined the bottom with satin.  

That's it - all finished and I hope it meets everyone's approval

Now for the pics - sorry for overload.....

Bye for now and please head on over to Rhedd's Creative Spirit and join in with our challenge for this month.  As you probably know it is ANYTHING GOES as long as it is MIXED MEDIA OR ALTERED ART.

Hugz to all always
