Hope you all had a lovely weekend. The weather here in West Sussex, turned out to be better than we expected.
I had to go to The Craft Barn in Surrey this afternoon. I took my samples and had to get more supplies for my classes. The first one is now on Wednesday 6th August and my next one on 28th August. I have just got another sample to do.
This is a jewellery box I have made for an order. I bought the wooden trunk from The Craft Barn and painted it with the base colour of purple. I then did the crackle technique, using a cream colour for the top coat.
I used Martha Stewart Air Dry Clay to make the flowers and butterflies.
The roses I made just in the palm of my hand. For the daisies, I used a mould. Just for a change, they stayed as they came out of the mould. I do like playing with the moulded clay, changing it into a completely different flower!
This is the side view of the trunk. I embossed card and glued it to the box.
I lined all the inside and the bottom with purple satin. and made some sections for rings.
I made the tray for earings, which can be lifted out, to put heavy items in the bottom.
I quite enjoyed making this. I love the colour of the satin. It makes it look less handmade.
I think I have caught up with most blogs I follow. I will check tomorrow, incase I have missed someone. If I have missed you, I do apologise and I am sure I will catch up this week. I need another holiday to get over this one!
