This is my first altered item and I am quite pleased with how it turned out, I think I need to buy some more stash though for future projects such as modge podge etc, any excuse to spend LOL!
This is how the box started off it's little life, I bought it last year from Range but it has sat in a dark cupboard gathering dust since then!
I painted the box with metallic acrylic paint and then sponged the edges with distress and brilliance inks. The papers are Basic Grey - Sugared. I coloured the sweet Tilda image and the flowers she is sitting on using Promarkers then liberally sprinkled the roses with Glamour Dust. The lace and Broderie Anglais (originally from my daughters dress) are from my stash which I bought at a local fabric mill. Flowers are a mixture of Prima and the rest are from my stash (think they were from the bridal section of Hobbycraft).
Here it is filled with little goodies for my Princess - a girl can never have too many hair accessories when they are turning 7 on Sunday!
I am entering this into the following challenges:
Just Magnolia - In the Garden 9I would love a cottage rose garden like this)
Shabby Tearoom - Cottage comfort
