Had to use one of the glamour shots made by Ignacio. I so LOVE what he does to my photos I send him!!!
Being on his design team has some great perks! Cool images to use and awesome tweaked photos! ;-)
The top was a lot of fun. I first painted the top white with gesso and let it dry.
A second coat was made by using plaster and a stencil to give it some texture.
Then, added a bit of color with some ink pads and then shimmer modge podge.
And how do you like that green metal piece! It was in the dollar bin at Wally World and I grabbed it for a paint treatment! Used the Patina paint in Jade on that and also the little feet! Love love love those feet! ;-)
Added a graphic in the lid that I really loved from A Child Garden of Verses Collection at Nice Crane Designs.
Let me show you the whole collection of graphics from Nice Crane Designs. I had such a hard time choosing just one to use on this box!
And you ask, where will this little treasure box go? Well, I made it for a little friend of mine down the road. She is always begging her Mama to have us over for jello and swimming in the pool and happens to be a great fancier of Squinkies. Since her Mama also has a kick wheel and does clay outside in the summer, you can see how this might be a fun trip for me too! Anyhow, I thought we'd giver her a little present next time we saw her.
I wonder if she has a Sponge Bob one yet?
That is one of her cool little flowers on the top of my box!
Go check out Eye Candy Magic and tell Samantha I said hi!
Happy Tuesday and may the rest of the week speed on like a freight train to the weekend!
