I am away for a while and will be back 2 June :)
OK - so tarting up a match box may be easy for the arty farty amongst us but oh my!! this sort of project is so not my forte. . It is good to get out of ones comfort zone now and then - so I'm told, lol..
Now it is finished I'll admit I enjoyed the experience :)
I know you all know what a match box looks like and this is the naked original :)
I started off covering the box and the ends of the drawer using a page from an old book liberally distressed with Vintage Photo DI.
I glued on an image that I'd printed on tracing paper and a piece of music coloured with same old Vintage Photo and Worn Lipstick and painted over with iridescent medium.
The corrugated heart is covered with my version of faux metal - scrunched kitchen foil wiped over with black paint. I stamped 'memories' down one side and stuck on some lace around the other.
I am proud of the pearls made with Petal Pink liquid pearls - I am getting better at this :)
Due to lack of imagination I just finished it off with a scrunchy ribbon bow and a little crinoline flower.
Also thought it better to quit before I ruined it.
Actually, the more I look at it the more I like it, so that is good :)
Frilly & Funkie - alter it!
Thank you for stopping by today
Cheers me dears
