A posy Box.......

Well as suspected yet again time got away from me this week,
 so apologies for the lack of postings !!
Its friday evening so a G n T has been poured and I am sat here prepping this next weeks posts.
I have been busy with DT work this week - Splodgeaway is back on Create and craft this Sunday during Tool can take a sneak peak at whats on offer here
I thought I would share this Posy box with you - I had done some wedding flowers and these were left over so I cretaed a posy for the living room then of course I needed something to pop it in so I could get my G n T glass back lol!!
I used a paper mache box and decorated it simply. After a base coat had been applied I Added further interest with heart chaped doillies and Ferro applied through a mask. I then let loose with lots of acrylic paints ( Eco and Fresco are my faves just now) in shades of greens, yellows, neutrals and a touch of pink
The box has some simple stamping over it and then is finished with diecut flowers, pearl trim and lace.

I best call it quits for now I hope you have lots planned for this Mothers Day weekend - I am off to make Mums card
Have a great weekend see you back here on Sunday
Crafty cheers
