Happy Good Friday folks! I hope you all have a nice day planned ( that includes eating copious amounts of hot cross buns of course!). I have had this entire Easter week off work which has been lovely as it's given me plenty of time to get my teeth into a project I have had sitting in my cupboard to make for over 2 years now. Pretty shocking eh? Well, I've finally put it right and am pleased to be able to share my finished Brusho's box at last.
The MDF kit was from Candy Box Crafts. It was easy to put together, although I found it a tad fiddly holding it in place while the glue dried, but it was well worth the effort to be able to store my bits and bobs in something that makes me smile.
The backing papers were made with Dylusions sprays- I just adore working with these. So vibrant! I didn't really have a plan in mind, but then I never do. I tend to be a 'get everything out and wait for inspiration to strike' kinda gal. All I knew for this was that I wanted to use some of my collection of stamps from Visible Image. Their stamps were made for mixed media work so if you haven't seen them before do click the link and check them out.
I set to work with masks, stencils, paint and embossing powders and of course the stamps, and soon had a selection of cut pieces I was happy with and the whole thing came together like magic before my eyes. The drawers dont come supplied with knobs, but I had these cute little knocker style ones I picked up at Ally Pally last Sept from the Every Crafts A Pound stand which did the job beautifully once I had altered the colour with alcohol ink to make them more funky and less vintage looking.
I hope you have a great Easter weekend. Thanks for popping in to see what I have been up to.
