I failed to make the cut for #3UP this time, loved every minute of it last year and aim to try again later in the year, my heartiest congratulations go to those that did get through and for the tremendous makes you all made. For one in particular, my best mate Cazz, whom I met on twitter about 4 years ago. We chat on BBM mainly now, and we craft along at opposite ends of the country via BBM. The marvels of modern technology.
For this make I used a Tando Creatives Stationery chest, and following construction (not the easiest thing to build) I based the exterior in Do Craft white acrylic, and the interior in pale blue. I then covered the exterior in Do Craft Lilac acrylic and got out some stencils and got busy with Grunge Paste.
I then walked away as I had no idea where it was going, the only thing I was sure of was the stamp I wanted to use.
Following a trip to B&Q to purchase door knobs, I set about painting in. The sides were covered in a mash up of Chutney, Seaweed, Chartreuse and Limelight Frescos. The birds I painted in Space Cadet. The top was a mash up of Space Cadet, Beach Hut, and Chartreuse. The fronts of the drawers were lilac, Chartreuse and limelight.
I then covered the dragonfly and the flower seed heads in Green Amethyst TG and the birds in Sapphire. and stamped the sentiment from ELB05
Thanks again to all the #3UPers for their fab makes this week. Here's to the next round
