My project today shows what I have been up to for the past, well, almost week. You'll probably take one look at it and wonder why in the world it took me so long to finish, but there are a BUNCH of layers of Mod Podge on here. and they take so very very long to dry in my old home.
Mick's girlfriend, Jocelyn, had wanted something to keep her handmade cards in for a while now. So I decided to make a special box for her for part of our Christmas gift to her. As you might remember, her favorite color is purple (which explains why you see quite a few cards with this color on my blog!). When Tammy at A Day for Daisies introduced these precious images in her December Club Kit, I knew the time was right to get started on the box.
As soon as I saw these mechanical butterfly/mermaid/fairy wings, all I could think was how fun they would be with buttons in their centers. they are edged in distress stickles and lightly sprayed with glimmer mist for a subtle glow irl.
Papers are My Mind's Eye, flowers are Prima sprayed with glimmer mist, ribbon is Martha Stewart, shimmerz paint was added to main image, and leaf die is from Joanna Sheen.
