Dreaming of Spring in a Box
So here it is Spring in a Box!
-covered that with Ranger's Distress crackle paint (picket fence)
step 2-gathered some digital pages, torn the paper to fit the box
-inked edges of paper and the box with Ranger's Distress ink (brushed corduroy)
love how you can see the pink paint peaking through the crackle
-cut circle rounds out of chipboard
-adhered digital pages to the chipboard's
-added pink paint and crackle paint around the edges
-punched a hole in all chipboard's added twine and torn fabrics
-added some little pretties to the album cover
don't you just love the rose image....beautiful!
-birds nest added pink paint and crackle to give a worn look
-glued reindeer moss inside the nest adorned with little birdie, roses, tiny eggs, buttons, pearls and glitter
-fussy cut out images of butterflies and tiny rose bud and leaves from Marion's digital pages to tuck in here and there.
-glue tiny wooden spools to bottom (also painted and crackled) just to cute.
