Good morning, this mornings post is my DT debut project for the Craft Box! I'm still doing a happy dance to be part of such a fabulous team. If you have'n't heard of Craft Box, it's a wonderful monthly box of crafty goodies which arrives beautifully packaged with a personal note from Anna the lovely lady behind Craft Box. Each month the goodies are themed and this month's box has the theme of Timeless and it's full of beautiful crafty treats, you can find all about Craft Box here
I've made a card, a necklace and a little gift box using goodies from the May box and there is still loads left, I'll be sharing some more projects over the next few days. The necklace was made using elements from the Timeless box with a few finding The beads in this months selection were in a lovely little tin so I decided to alter it. I began with a coat of gesso and then applied some of the lovely tissue from the Craft Box with matte medium. The frame is also from the May box, gilded with silver gilding flakes and applied to another piece of the beautiful tissue with matte medium. Once it was dry I filled the aperture with resin and left it to dry. I added a bow, a little pearl and then used some of the pretty washi tape in the box to cover the lower part of the tin. The pearl feet were part of this months preorder gift!
The card was made using more of the gorgeous tissue. The focal image is a stamp from Stampendous, coloured with distress inks/ I've added washi tape, a pretty little window embellie, flowers, one of the little frames gilded with silver flakes, feathers, mirror charm and a beautiful red piece of lace
As always each craft box is full of beautiful goodies and for my necklace I used some of the beads and one of the gorgeous cabochons. I used a glue on bail to turn the cabochon into a pendant. The chain is from this month's craft box as are the beads
Phew I told you you got lots of goodies in each Craft Box lol.
