An ideal treasure chest !

It's the weekend ! Yah.. time for me to stop work and play! that's in my dreams, but for the past couple of weeks, I have been slowly making this box. It was very kindly given to me by Hels, and to be truthful, I have sort of pinched the idea from her :(, mainly to store my idea-ology in, just as she has!!! I am such a collector of boxes, and often I never do anything with them, but this so called out to me....so I got to use lots and lots of Terra all over it. I stamped into it with a calligraphic mat. I let it dry. I sprayed it with lots of blue mica sprays. I added mother of pearl Precious metal colour in some parts, and I sprayed the inside. I finally got to use my Idea-ology feet too!! I filled it with idea-ology!!
Have a great Saturday, and stay creative!

Gorgeous! I just picked up a box kinda like that, I guess I should do something with it before I stuff my embelishments in it!

That has turned out beautifully, and everything is just a grab away. Super.

OMG Jennie - it's pants. You have my address, I'll take it off you for a quid. Please do a whole post on your multi-tasking-without- panicking-to get-everything- finished skills. I have two or three things on the go and just fiddle between them...oh why!!!
