Aurora Wings Challenge #20

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.

I would like to enter these makes into the following challenges


  1. OOOH, what gorgeous projects, Lorraine! Love how you've altered the plain wood jewelry box to match your new bedroom and the pendant is divine. Fabulous work! xxD

  2. I'm so glad to read all that went into these with additional pics on your post here, Lorraine. I had no idea that you added the wallpaper to create the pretty texture on the box! I love the white-on-white of the jewelry box, which showcases the different texture from pearl beads to satin lining inside. The rose border on the lid is so beautiful. Like I said before, I have an affinity for fantasy blue roses. Yours look so beautiful with grey/silver leaves complimenting the blue petals. The pendant is gorgeous - once again beautiful use of white! Thank you so much for these stunning inspirations for our new challenge at Aurora Wings!!
