hi - first a Gabrielle update. She is doing ok... the heat of the day is still getting to her, but she is hanging in. Actually she has spent some time in the bathroom... yes in my house. We had to get her cooled down, So that is a first, I have jokingly said that I would bring them in the house to take care of them. But when the Doc says that is the best treatment, then all sanity goes out the window and I bring a donkey in the house! Now her Mom has to stay outside, so in and out the baby goes to get food from Mom. Each day she is a little better... so hopefully we can get through this and she gets stronger and can fight the heat after a few days or week or so.
Now on to my Dust It off Sunday post - this time it wasn't my image I dusted off. No while sorting out some of my "Junk" on the shelves, I found a cute round wooden box. I must have purchased it on sale at some point.. LOL don't remember. But I decided it was time to decorate it! This was an opportunity to use my new paints too!
So I pulled out my paints. I started to go with something to match my craft room. But then for some reason, I decided that brown and white gone vintage would look better. I used Claudine Hellmuth Studio Semi-Gloss Blank Canvas white, and Sable Brown and painted the entire box.
"Bird Cage", But it was too small - so I decided to use the Claudine Hellmuth Studio multi-medium Gloss paint as a image transfer. I stamped the image, copied it larger to the size of the lid then used the transfer to put the image on the box. Love this! Images can be any size we need them! I lightly colored with Copic Markers to add just a touch of color.
WOW how dramatic is that! So I punched out enough to circle the entire base of the box and then glued it down with the Gloss paint. WOW... then it needed more Distressed Stickle dots! After it all dried, I inked it all over. Then put a second coat of gloss paint -
Hope you enjoyed my little round box. I sure had fun making this one. I got messy with my new paints, finally used one of those impulse purchases on sale "to decorate", and got to enlarge a image I love and have Bigger fun with it!!
Have a great Sunday -
