Hop.....Hop......Hop!!

Welcome to Swirlydoos' February Blog Hop Block Party!!
Welcome to Swirlydoos February Kit Reveal Blog Hop BLOCK PARTY!!!
If you came here from Angelicas's blog, then you are on the right track. 
If not, go back to Swirlydoos' blog and start from there. 
We have some amazing projects for you to see today
and as a bonus we have 2 manufacturer blogs that are joining in the fun!!
There are 3 prize packs up for grabs so make sure to follow along and have fun!!


I my creation is from this month Technique/Project kit~


3 of the boxes were created very similar. 
I wet a strip of paper and crumpled it up.
When dry I adhered it to my box.


I applied Victorain Velvet and Weathered Wood Distress Stain to the flowers,
to change their appearance.


I first applied gesso to the wooden hinge, then applied Picket Fence Crackle Distress Paint.
(if you don't the Crackle paint will just flick off!) I then wiped on some Weathered Wood Distress Stain and applied Crackle Accents to seal it.
I couldn't find brads that I liked, soooooo I rubbed them in Distress Embossing Ink
then dipped them in Frayed Burlap Distress EP.
When cooled I flattened with a hammer!


The background of 4 of the boxes were made by first painting each box with Gesso.
I applied a layer of Multi Medium then squinshed up a piece of dictionary paper
into the medium. When dry, I lathered on some Weathered Wood Distress Stain.
Next came a layer of Gesso. When dry, I sanded the raised surfaces and swiped on more Weathered Wood DS. To finish off the box, I applied some Sepia Archival Ink.


Another beauty......

Love the vintage lace and faux pearls!
