Ok....be prepared to faint! Lol....I actually did girly - well girly for me. I did put my own spin on it though. What exactly am I talking about? Well I decided that this year I wanted to challenge myself and enter more contests, participate in more challenges, and experiment with different styles. When given a choice I have a tendency to gravitate to steampunk and grunge.
The contest I am entering is for Tim Holtz's Tattered Floral contest. I decided to make a
configuration box as I have never done one before. Here is the finished project:
The flowers in the picture below this one, I used as the main pieces on the top. I made two large and two small ones out of canvas. I painted a ton of metal white, with touches of purple, I took an enamel piece I made and painted it as well.
To the front, I took a hinge I had, painted it white and hightlighted in purple.
Left cube: Really the paper is the same color purple as the Bonne Fete paper from the collection - need to learn how to use the features on my camera. I used paper from the collection, a Jolees gem, a Recollections birds nest highlighted with white, and a bird.
Fingers crossed. Please please.....those prize packages look awesome. Fingers crossed.
