An Altered Tilda Jewellery Box!

Good Morning!
Hope you are all enjoying the weekend, I finally got around to doing something I had been planning on the past week. When I was out shopping I came across a plain jewellery box and after seeing many altered items in Blogland I thought it was about time I gave it a shot myself!

I have decorated the Jewellery Box with a Red Colour Scheme to go with my bedroom which has a Colour Scheme of Red and Cream.
I will warn you now that there are quite a lot of Piccies in this post! lol

This fits the Challenges at:
STAMP SOMETHING - DOG DAYS OF SUMMER
ALLSORTS - ANYTHING BUT A CARD
MAGNOLIA DOWN UNDER - INSPIRED BY A SONG
(Little Boxes - Malvina Reynolds)
RIBBON GIRL - USE RIBBON


I painted the whole box, inside & outside with White Gesso Paint and then added Red Cardstock to each panel.


I have added some DP & Embossed Cardstock along with some Ribbon.


I then added my main focal point and embellished the box.


I have added Red & Clear Dew Drops on each side.


Here's a couple of close-ups!





And finally here is what it looks like in my window :)


Copic Ciao Markers - C1, E00, E21, E31, E33, R27, R59


RECIPE:
Magnolia Stamp
PB Sentiment Stamp
Magnolia Papers
Flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts
Cheesecloth
Nesties
Paper Lace Heart Doily
Cuttlebug 'Snow' Embossing Folder
3D Gloss, Twinklets, Ribbon & Dew Drops from Stash

Before I go I thought I would share with you another piccie of something I have cooked seeing I got such lovely comments last time :) On Friday Afternoon I made some Strawberry & Vanilla Cupcakes!


Thanks for Popping By, Enjoy the rest of your Weekend!
Happy Crafting!

I echo the comments about your jewelry box listed already. Can you tell me why you used gesso instead of a white craft paint? I am not familiar with gesso--so please enlighten me! Thank you for sharing...ok to case???
