Creative Artiste August Challenge

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Today I am sharing my first design team project for Creative Artiste Challenge.

This month the design team had a colour chart to follow and to use flowers and butterflies.

My design team colleague Bev chose the theme for this month.

We are all looking forward to seeing your creations.

The theme is Anything Goes with Flowers and Butterflies

This is the side view of my altered box

View from the top.

Step by Step

1. I painted the top and the bottom of the paper mache box with acrylic paint.
2. On the base of the box I added floral lace with pearl embellishments in the centre of each flower and added a butterfly.
3. On the lid I first layered pearl floral trim around the sound.
4. For the top of the lid I added leaves from my stash, I then added flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
5. To finish off I added 3 pearl butterfly embellishments.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Crafting for all Seasons #107 - Bright and Beautiful

Frilly and Funkie - Things with Wings
