Gone Artsy DT Project

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I hope you are all having a wonderful day.

Today I am sharing my second DT project for Gone Artsy for this month.

The theme this month is Summer

Check out the Gone Artsy Zibbet Store for some amazing lace, bling and other embellishments to decorate your projects.

This was a smooth MDF box which I have decorated the side with wood grain embossing folder I embossed Kraft card adhered to the sides, painted with brown acrylic paint and once dry I used Pebeo Iridescent Copper paint by dry brushing over the embossed areas.

For the lid I embossed Kraft card using Vintage embossing folder, painted with brown acrylic paint and then dry brushed Pebeo Iridescent Copper paint. I then added metal feet to the box.

I have decorated the top of the box with a doily, peacock feather, ribbon flower, lace butterflies, metal charm butterfly and leaves all from Deb's store.

Please do check out the Gone Artsy blog for more photographs of my project.

Oh, my, I love how that embossing folder worked to make the wood grain on the box, Linda! Those lace butterflies and leaves are as marvelous idea, joined with the lovely flowers.
