Firstly I have to thank you all for your wonderful comments on my Blog today/yesterday.
For Hazel and I, fund raising has been part of our lives since our mum died at 41years old. We have had quite a few things in our lives that have spurred us into action when we have slowed down. So we just keep going, there are always people out there needing help.
Right!! my BIG project................................Elaine gave me a BIG paper mache box to see what I could do with it. She got it and had not a clue what to do with it. It sat on my worktop for two weeks with so many ideas going through my mind. It is much bigger than anything I have done before, I was frightened to start and make a mess of it. When I said this to Elaine she said "For goodness sake if you make a mess I will give just you another one, so stop panicking" here is my finished box.
The box measures 13" x 9" x 4"
I painted it all over with a stone coloured paint as my first thought was to make it antique looking.
I did a few roses in darker colours but did not like it one bit........................so change of heart again.
I stenciled over the whole box with my Spellbinder Butterfly and Rose Creations Dies
All the papers for the roses are printed from a NitWit collection (always and Forever)
Roses made using Spellbinder Blossom Five Dies
Leaves Spellbinder Foliage Dies
A few accents cut in Mirri Card using a Spellbinder Die I have had for years and of course in a packet with no name...........!!!
I added some lace round the edge of the lid.
Here is the top of the box face on.
That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by, I really appreciate it.
