CMM's Aug. 17 - Try Something New sponsored by My Creative Classroom


For my Try Something new I have made my first ever box.  Although not 100% percent happy with box - having learnt some vital lessons for next time I still like this box and am using it to house candles and tealights.

Having not been well all week I haven't been able to add move view of this box but I hope to try and add some more views in the next couple of days.

Techniques:
USED:  Freebie Vintage Photo and Whimsy Postage stamps

Papers:  Fairyopolis papers, Co-ordinations, Black cardstock
Dies used:  Marianne flourish dies and Whimsy Postage dies, daisy flower punch
Embellishments:  Gem flourishes, more gems, flowers, butterflies, brads

Best wishes,
Challenges I'm entering this into

Your box is gorgeous - the papers are beautiful as are those spectacular flourishes. The flowers add pops of color and drama to the vintage image. We're happy you are sharing your art with us at Jackson's Digital Expressions.
