Exploding box....



Here is the box I mentioned earlier, thanks so much for popping back...
A bit picture heavy so I will try keep the chat to a minimum...
Bigger than I thought it would be...
As you can see I stencilled it with texture paste, used a beautiful die from a friend, and a fairy die from ebay....
I wrote quotes, googled gardener sentiments to fill every side...
The wheel barrow was much bigger than I expected, but went with it and am so happy with the finish, that and all chippie were from Live and Love crafts, sadly Sandy closed the shop....
once I filled the barrow with flowers, I built a base for it to stand on, some foam and lots of tissue paint and flower soft, it took a while because of the drying time, but I was ok with the finish...
Trying to show as many angles as I can...
Once I had the box made, I made the lid, I think I do everything ass upwards, but it gets done,lots of tiny pearls added too, tulle and fibres on there don't think they showed up so well, but you get the gist...
Last but not least the tag for when it's all ready to hand over, she will be delighted I know, everything she loves on here, especially pink and Butterflies...haha...
Would like to enter this into the following challenges...
