Hi everyone welcome back to my happy place :)
This weeks DT project for Imagine if is a laser cut MDF art box.
After Jo said art box I knew exactly what I was going to do with it!
I had seen this idea on pinterest awhile ago and wanted to do my interpretation of a little shop.
I got right into it by gluing all the pieces together and painted the edges with a vintage white paint.
Then covered all the sections with a beautiful paper gifted to me by a dear friend that was just perfect for a French shabby look!
The little door I cut out using packaging from Imagine if, I stamped some white stayzon ink onto acetate for a window, added a metal embellishment painted in the vintage pink and aged it with some Victorian velvet ink.
Some of the embellishments I have made are the cameo painted with gesso and placed behind the door for some interest.
The little thimbles are buttons that I have glued some flowers in and attached to the display pole I made from left overs of the box.
The little bird picture is glued onto a metal embellishment from my stash.
Little vases made from beads, also the shelves have some crochet trim added for interest.
The little door handle I used a broken piece of a key....perfect!
I covered the outside of the box in same paper collection! love the sparkle!
Added a chipboard edge from Imagine if painted in the vintage pink.
Also used a fence made from Imagine if chipboard to hang bunches of flowers from, mini perfume bottles, Eiffel towers toned down with gesso, little books and a dress form adorn my little French boutique!
Sitting on the step inside the door is a tub of flowers.....
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the process
