Sally the girl at Craftology who does the jewellery classes asked me if I'd alter a tin for her to keep her glass beads in.She makes the beads herself and they are gorgeous as well as her jewellery pieces.In return she told me I could choose some beads and she made them up into a necklace for me with some crystals and pearls.
The box I painted with turquoise acrylic paint and covered with the beautiful BoBunny Alyssa papers.Sally likes birds,so I stamped some from Personal Impressions and coloured with Copics and added one on each side.On the lid I added a cuttlebug embossed oval cut with my nesties.I coloured a Gorjuss girl with my Copics and mounted her on top.The letters are American Craft Thickers painted in turquoise and stickled.I wish I'd left them without the bling now.I gave it a couple of coats of mod podge and added the flowers and butterfly.
This is the gorgeous necklace Sally made for me.I think I got the best deal.
And a close up of her gorgeous glass beads.
I had hoped to try and do another challenge but haven't had time.I had to help my friend finish her wedding invites,alter this tin and finish the LO for my class on Monday.All are finished now so hopefully can get a card made.
