Keepsake Box

Good afternoon :)

I thought I would share a recent Keepsake box I made for my sister. She had asked for something special, pretty and pink that she could keep her children's keepsakes in.

For this I altered a fake book type box using Prima Flowers and butterfly, Dusty Attic chipboard, various mediums and other embellishments. The Dusty Attic chipboard used were Vintage Frame and Little Angel.

I primed the chipboard with Studio Gesso and then as I did not have the Dusty Attic shade of pink paint I wanted, I used Jenni Bowlin Chewing Gum paint. I made several different gradients of pink by mixing with Dusty Attic Alabaster paint. I then applied to the chipboard using pale Pink on the inner section to a brighter pink on the outer edges. When this was dry I covered with Ranger Distress Crackle Paint in Rock Candy and added some Prima Pearls.

Thanks for visiting x
