Winter memory box

Hello everyone! Monika here.

I have for you another christmas inspiration. This time I have made a wooden box for Christmas treasures.

I love the new Christmas Papers, they are so beautiful and vintage! I hope you will like them too, and if you haven’t seen the Christmas Compendium papers yet click here to take a quick look . They are playing a central role in the project i am bringing to you today.

I started by painting the sides of the box with IndigoBlu black Gesso. After applying the paper I played with Mega Flakes (Lancashire RoseManchester Tart) and Miss Money Penny and Goldfinger IndigoBlu Metallic Paints. I wanted to create an old look like it belonged to my grandmother.

As a closing to my box I used a wooden base of earrings. I painted one of them with IndigoBlu black gesso, then I stamped with the new Christmas Icons A6 Stamp, using FlitterGlu and MegaFlakes – Lancashire Rose.
