Embellish it - Week 4...and a sneak peak.

Yay I've made it to week 4 :D This weeks challenge set by Lisa K is of course vintage...The criteria she set was to make it vintage using lace and ribbon, use rubons and paint, include a distressing technique and lastly must be something for practical use. So This week I decided to stop procrastinating and finally pulled out this old beautiful little cabinet that I picked up from our local carboot sale a couple months back. This challenge was just the push I needed to create...So I turned this lovely cabinet into a jewellery box for Savannah-Rose. I know she's too little for jewellery just yet..but in the future hopefully it's something she can treasure.

Ok so I repainted the entire box then lightly sanded the edges to give it that distressed look...I also used Tim holtz crackle medium on the picket fence to age it a tad.
In the below pic I adhered the beautiful vintage key hole and key by Melissa Frances onto the box.
Below is a close up of all the detail inside the jewellery box. The paper on the back wall is of course the beautiful prima. Basic Grey Chipboard tree. In the bottom corner I cut from websters papers creating that flower embellishment, then within it I adhered some blossoms and flowers. Then I painted this old miniature furniture piece and made lace pillows for the top centering it with a brad and laced the edge of the chair. To finish it off the hooks needed to be screwed in and birdhouse needed to finish it off.

Below is an extreme close up of the chair and blossoms and flowers and also flower soft..First time using flower soft..but wow..its so pretty..I can definitely see myself buying some more :D

How cute are those little chipboard birds!!! Thanks for the great challenge Lisa and the scrap n craft team. Remember to go and check out everyone's work in the gallery. In the below post you will find the link.
Before I go I also have one more sneak peak of the guest dt spot for Mad About Scrap. Full reveal still to come :D
Thankyou for stopping by...Much love Belynda-Lee aka Lyn. xx
