To celebrate their 10th birthday, the wonderful people at Paperartsy are having a party - a blog party and I was delighted to be invited to take part again following a recruitment campaign on twitter.
This time we were sent a bigger parcel of goodies and a list of instructions - here's mine:
I painted the whole of the inside and out with Haystack, then added the other colours - Hey Pesto, Chocolate Pudding and Smoked Paprika, adding paint, wiping it back and adding more, until I was happy.. though not so with the photos, sorry!
I decided I would add some hinges to my box, to make it easier (I hoped) to photograph and more use later...Luckily the instructions said we could add our own embellishments to what we were sent, and I had some little hinges. Finding a hammer was more of a problem, till I remembered my Tim Holtz Texture Hammer!
Time to arrange the flowers - that took ages longer than I thought, to get them right. I decided to add some extra bits - idea-ology from my stash - to break up the softness a bit.
I decided to leave the box plain inside so it can be used as a little trinket box.
I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in organising this at Paperartsy - I know it's been a lot of work - and for letting me play again with you!
Happy 10th birthday, Paperartsy.
