A Little Trinket Box

A Little Reminder

Hi everyone, I would just like to share a little trinket box that I made 
using one of Mitzi's gorgeous digi images, you can find this image HERE 
at her Aurora Wings Etsy Shop

I would also just like to remind everyone of this months challenge over at 

and the theme this time is 

Under The Sea

To make this little trinket box I've used the following
Papier Mache Box which I covered using a sheet of Decoupach paper,
I then added a coating of Mod Podge Matt to seal it.
Next was the fun part, adding lots of pretty shells and beads, oh and 
not forgetting the skull beads.

To colour this gorgeous image I have used a selection of both Pro/Flexmarkers 
and also Spectrum Noir
I then added some Crystal Stickles and some White Opal Liquid Pearls.

Why not pop along to the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog and see what 
inspirational things the lovely DT girls have created and also check 
out what fabulous prizes are just waiting to be won, remember 
"You've gotta be in it to win it"

Huge Hugs
