Aurora Wings Challenge #20
Hi everyone, It's challenge time once again over at
And the theme this month is....
For my Aurora Wings DT make I have tried my hand at making a
wooden jewellery box together with a pendant which features a beautiful
Aurora Wings image called "PEACOCK MASQUERADE" which you will find
in Mitzi's Aurora Wings Etsy Store. You will also find the beautiful
"ROSE BORDER" digi there too, that I've decoupaged and used on top of my
wooden jewellery box.
Things that I've used to make the Jewellery Box
Bare wood wooden lidded box which I then covered in the same wallpaper that I've
used to updo the drawer fronts of my pine bedroom drawers. I then painted the box with
primer and then added a coat of white acrylic satin.
I then coloured up Mitzi's gorgeous "ROSE BORDER" digi image in the same
colours that I've used my newly decorated bedroom. I coloured the image a further
three times and fussy cut and layered it up. Next I added the coloured image to the
top of the jewellery box and then covered over with a layer of construction strength
I then added some ivory pearl trim around the top of the acetate to cover
the glue holding the acetate in place, I also added the pearl trim around the
base of the jewellery box and then again around the mirror inside the lid of
the box too.
I then lined the box with ivory satin (which was not the easiest of things to do lol)
and then as a finishing touch I added one of Tim Holtz's locks and keys embellishments.
Both the ROSE BORDER image and the PEACOCK MASQUERADE images
were coloured using a selection of Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
To make the pendant I used a silver oval cameo setting together with a glass
cabochon. I added the coloured PEACOCK MASQUERADE image and
then covered it with some Diamond Glaze, then popped the glass cabochon
on top and pressed down lightly to get rid of any air bubbles beneath the glass,
I then popped it onto a silver chain.
