Memory Box


Hello world .....  if there is anyone left reading my blog lol.
I have been away creating, not on a regular basis but just when mood takes me and I have found it much more satisfying and enjoyable.
Anyway I've made an attempt at "Altered Art" (I use that term loosely) lol.


I got the plain chip board box from my local craft shop, I added to layers of white acrylic paint to it, decoupaged blue gingham "Craft Creation" papers to it and more layers of white paint. I let this dry and then added a coat of varnish and then sand papered the edges.


I also carried out the same techniques to the inside of the box. The papers to the inside are by "Studio 45".


I have added sentiments and vintage baby photos by Pion  from "Live Love Crafts".  I have added lace, ribbon, gems, pearls and roses.
The roses symbolise "Love" and the buterflies symbolise "New Life".


The panel on the top has been left blank for personalisation.

Thank you for looking.
