Vintage / Shabby Chic Wooden Box !!!

Hello friends, 

I am back with another creative vintage / shabby chic project. This time, it's the one that is close to my heart.

What is there on 14th November??? No marks for guessing. Here in India, it’s children’s day!!!  When I was a child, there was no specific celebration of the Children's day. However our parents celebrated each and every  day for us in spite of  their busy lives. This year I will be celebrating this special day with my mother. 

Have you ever thought opening up your mother's heart ??? What do you think you will find there? I am sure it will be filled with love for her children, brim to brim. Don't you think so? With this very thought, I have tried to capture that moment in my creation. Sharing it with you here...

First, i got raw mdf box from my stash. I have very lovely image of mother and daughter lost in their world ; as if time froze at that very moment! I have used the same image for this artifact. 


As I wished to indulge in this project to my ‘hearts content’. Driven by this thought,  I made a heart from air dry clay and gave a coat of white Heavy Gesso from Papericious Brand.

After that, i decoupaged that lovely image at the centre of top side with Decoupage glue from Papericious. Now the colouring time !!! I have coloured clay heart with Finnabair's Rust paste colours and sprinkled mini stones with the help of Soft gloss gel from finnabair too. And  coloured




,all sides and inner portion of box too with colours and tried to mix decoupage paper’s background with the box.  
  
At the end, I simply stamped a beautiful line of lovely mother and daughter relation in the box with distressed ink and glued a sequence to enhance it more. And it's Done !!! 


You can gift this box to your mother on this special day and add any gift whatever she likes ... perfume , candles , jewellery etc. Because she is a mother we can still be children! You may also give this to your little Princess and fill it with the goodies that are her favourite.  

Running short of time to make it? No problem... You can buy it from my online shop at Artery Crate


I would link this project to following challenges ...
