The Button Box
I aged the Vintage Lock by heat embossing it using Stampendous bronze embossing powder, and adhered it to the front flap on the box.
So when you flip the lid, you can see my beautiful button collection!! Easier to find now instead of emptying out a jar. And so much prettier.

My next project is a mixed media piece that was totally inspired by Leanne Bishop (Luvlee Scrappin). She did an awesome YouTube video tutorial that you must check out!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXTgnNXpd6M&feature=youtu.be
I adored the white washed effect on the whole canvas and wanted to do the same. Thanks Leanne for the wonderful inspiration!!! I used and entered the Prima April BAP as my design.
Mixed Media Canvas
I used the Blue Fern Studios Art Nouveau Frame for my 12 x 12 canvas. I covered the canvas with a sheet of Prima Fairy Belle paper in La Ronda pattern. I white washed everything in Gesso, and used sprays and color mists on the chipboard pieces while they were still slightly damp. The color bleeds into the Gesso. I used Donna Downey Poppies and Peonies "Floral" 12x12 Mask with texture paste on the some of the circles on the patterned paper as to follow the pattern. I found that mixing my texture paste with a little Gesso is the perfect medium for a softer texture.
I have an old stash of Prima flowers that I have been hoarding. I love love the big ones.I have 2 buckets of the big ones. They are a discontinued design. I must hoard them and use them sparingly.
Just another view of the beautiful Prima Flowers.
QuicKutz Storybook Mini 4-Inch by 8-Inch for my title using heavy weight card stock and just went over it with Gesso. Then I just sprayed some Glimmer Mist and Lindys Starburst spray in the same colors I used on the background. I also used Donna Downey Poppies and Peonies "7 Stems" 6x6 Mask, under the photo where the drips are in the sketch. Then added a few more drips when I sprayed the stems.
I used one of the Blue Fern Studios Gabrielle Butterflies (there are 3 in the set) and base coated it with Gesso, and sprayed it with the same sprays I used throughout the page.

The beauty of Blue Fern Studios chip board is that it withstands just about any medium and holds up really really well. There isn't anything I wont try on it.
