Mixed Media Box Prima October PPP

Hello creative geniuses :)
Here today with another "just because" project. It's  been a long time since I have been able to 
participate in challenges, so the last 2 months I have created something for the monthly
PPP over at the Prima blog. The colors this month were super fun! I was scared at first of the orange. But I just added a few touches of it, and it worked :) 
Hope you all like my box! I"ve been heavy into boxes again lately! Seems like it's all that I want 
to alter Lol. I used a TON of Prima products, Some of my cherished Ingvild
Bolme resins and junkyard findings as well. Being a part of her DT is amazing! I can't imagine
creating without using her pieces. 
Wellllll I hope you all like my little box! Thanks for looking :)

 I had a big wooden piece that i placed on top and cut it to continue on all sides of the box. Time consuming
but worth it , I think so anyways.
 I recently got a wax sealing kit and have been super obsessed with using it. Lol
you will see this on LOTS of my projects!

 Instead of adding actual lace I used a Prima lace stamp to go around the edges with Stazon i really really REALLy like this effect!

An Eerie Tale Masquerade Mask for Graphic 45

hello lovely creative peeps! here today with a share for Graphic 45 using An Eerie Tale!
I am so in LOVE with this paper collection! So many enchanting ideas come to mind when I see this imagery! I had to create a little masquerade mask for home decor :) To get the paper to fit any curved surface just run it through an embossing folder and it makes it super easy to adhere, and adds amazing texture. I've been dying to share this project, sometimes it is so HARD to not show projects when they are done. I've had pieces that i have waited nearly a year to share before due to DT commitments, and its a test of patience and strength Lol. But it keeps me constantly creating :)  Hugs!

Botanical Tea Layout

Hey lovely crafty people! Here today with a layout for Graphic 45. Goodness it seems i never do 
layouts these days! Even though i LOVE them! There are those of you who are masters of layouts, and 
i find so much inspiration from you! so thank you for that!!!!! I've always been a bit intimidated by them,
altering items comes so easy for me, but a sheet of empty 12x12 paper just waiting for me to do 
all the work scares me lol. Anyways I went with a soft vintage feel for this one, inspired by
the gorgeous picture i found online! I did lots of background work, but I kept it light so the paper was 
the true star. 
Make sure to check out the blog for more inspiring projects. Jane has a gorgeous layout! And a card share from on of G45's amazing followers! G45 has the most talented fans!
the half cut circles in the background are inspired by Joycekers Lawrence ( her blog is so inspiring). 
I used a few stencils with my Ingvild Bolme chalk edgers. I matched the colors to this gorgeous paper.
 I didn't use very many embellishments, the paper is just so pretty it didn't need it. I used some natural dried elements like spanish moss and sprigs of babys breath. Some chipboards from various companies. I really played off the circles from my frame.
This gorgeous lace is from Tresors De Luxe. Just about the prettiest lace ever!
