New Draws








Oh yes a little stick it together project, some glue and paint, a pretty little jewellery box.

The elements came clearly marked for very easy assembly, everything fits together neatly no gaps but a smooth finish.   Left for the glue to go off completely found myself with a very sturdy little 2 drew unit.

DecoArt chalk paints and crackle effect put to use.  First time using these products really pleased with the results in fact might just be the best I've tried, and believe me I'v tried quite a few.   All the layers left to dry and crackles to form.  Next stamping with Indigo Blu poppy stamps arranged, inked and pressed on.   Oh no! shrikes of dismay the words were upside down.   Back out with the crackle effect stuff and then more chalk paint, did not completely cover it but that just adds to the shabby chic effect.

Stamps with words the right way round added again and more of that set and the Indigo Blu poppy heart used on the drew fronts and box sides.    Chameleon Pens used to colour everything in edges and corners Treasure Gold in Green Amber.  Some late stamping of butterflies and we are almost complete.   Pieces of quartz attached with wire for drew pulls, just got to line the draws ready for some of my jewellery makes.

This is the sort of thing I really love doing it is great to be back on it again, getting my hands onto the project, shaping and styling it making it.   I'm going to share this with;
