MBT GDT project. Altered Jewelry box.




I am super excited to share this project with you. Most of you know i am a part of Jade's squirrel society. This month's theme was soft winter romance. I wanted to do something different so I picked up a jewelry box from michaels instead of the regular cigar box. It was so much work but well worth it. I hope she likes it.

The items I used on the box from the store are:
Tear drop lace
clear crystal flowers
bling trim



make sure you stop by the blog as well. Every 15th of the month we have a blog hop. :)

My First project is using the District Market burlap canvas. This was so much fun to play with. In the video below i have a tutorial on a technique i used to make a cool accent embellishment. It's called image transfer. Be sure to check out the video below. I will have a sped up video showing you how i created this canvas on the swirlydoos blog on the 21st. I stamp with the gesso....make some really easy flowers and use the masks.So be sure to check it out. It is packed with fun techniques.

For this tag I used a technique that is pretty simple but makes any project pop with texture and color. I stamped with the white gesso that is in the technique kit. Then i sprayed the glimmer mist over it using the mask. Under the picture is a video tutorial of that technique.
