I am so very happy to be able to participate in a wonderful blog hop compliments of Graphic 45, Petaloo, and Xyron. There are some amazing prizes to be had, if you should choose to enter, details below. The theme for this hop was fall decor, and the projects my fellow team mates have put out have been absolutely astounding.
To start this piece off I painted a small matchbox by Graphic 45 with black acrylic paint.
I covered the outside with my favorite paper from Steampunk Spells. I got to try out Xyron adhesives and fell in love, the Mega Runner is just awesome. As you can see the edges of the box, along with the metal elements are buffed with a little bit of copper gilders paste.
I love the crown I created for the top. Here I use a large brass stamping from B'sue Boutiques along with another filigree and an old typewriter key.
I just cannot get enough of Graphic 45's metal keyholes. A matching pair bookends the project. You can also see the lovely flowers here from Petaloo. These add dimension and bring out the autumnal colors of the project.
I hope you found a little fall inspiration on my blog today. Be sure to stop by the Graphic 45 blog or their Facebook page for your chance to win two lovely prizes.
