Paperartsy - miniatures part 2

Hello! Friday again, can you believe it?? - I have to go into town tomorrow as I pulled my glasses off my head whilst on the phone and the arm stayed behind my ear lol - I am managing on one pair but a bit concerned as the arm on one of the sides is a bit stiff I'd be lost without my glasses…. anyway, I digress, its miniatures fortnight over on the Paperartsy blog, I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed working on a small scale….so, for my second piece I have decorated/altered a small matchbox…



The box was painted with caramel fresco paint and then stamped using a crackle stamp and brown ink some treasure gold was added to the edges.  The text was from Ellen Vargo's plate 10 - stamped onto a piece of cardstock and the edges inked with distress ink, some flowers and bling were also added.



An inner cover was made to fit the box - flowers were placed on the bottom and a clay hand, made with white clay and a mould - also painted with caramel fresco paint with nail varnish and ring added..wrapped in flowers was added...

Blimey I hope they can fix your glasses for you. I am totally blind without mine, to the extent I often have to get one of the kids to find them for me because I can't see them...on the bed....windowsill...or some other totally obvious place !

This is so small! Wonderful transformation of that mundane box...
