Just a Little Box...

I bought a few paper mache boxes the other day and I had to decorate one straight away ! I think I have been a bit OTT again but I had so much fun decorating it !



And here is the box before I started playing with it !!!


Recipe : I first covered the box and lid with Gesso, then painted them with the "Shoft Heather" Americana paint (both from Calico Crafts, as well as the moss) - The big rose is from a local craft shop - The little roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts - Leaves : Die from Marianne Design - Lace from Live and Love Crafts - The miniature glass bottle was purchased on Ebay, I filled it up with pink glitter.

My box will enter the challenge "Anything Goes and/or Something Altered" with PanPastel UK and the challenge "Decorate a Container" with City Crafter.

Happy Crafting !
