I was so excited to use some of my Christmas money to order the Trinket Box!! And I love the leaf arches from the thinlits set! One day I'll have all the Eileen Hull dies on my wish list :)
And here is my first trinket box!! A Fairy's Den...
Here are a few step outs I did while I was making this little gem.
After I cut out my pieces I inked the covers and spine with Distress Oxides, and painted the tray piece with Finnabair's Sparks in Iris Potion. I also painted the inside black using my Dylusions.
While I was letting all of this dry, I used my Twist and Style tool to twist up my wire that would hold my fairy in place. I then painted my fairy in shimmery paints and wax finishes.
|Look how perfect that twist is! Now to practice wire words!|
|A little resin fairy I had in my stash by Prima.|
|Ohh Hammered Metal Embossing Powder from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies...you make my heart skip a beat! These wooden spools were again bits I found in my stash!|
|Seriously look at all that melty goodness!|
Inside behind the fairy is a little nest of pink mesh (that i saved from a bouquet of flowers)
I added a strip from the Graphic 45 Fairy Dust collection around the tray part.
Then I added the leaf arches from the thinlits set and added flowers from my stash (which is actually getting low since I want flowers on everything lol )
|Again...the finished Fairy's Den, with a little hare charm from Emerald Creek guarding the opening.|
Thanks for stopping by and checking things out!! Come back soon as I've got a project for Wild Whisper Designs coming this week too!
Have a great week everyone!
