Wedding Treasures by Meredith Hilly

Hello everyone. I have been very busy making a box for my daughter
to put her wedding treasures in. I made it for her to keep all those wedding items that don't fit into a album. Like a hair clip or wedding personalised cuff links.

I found Megs Gardens lace dollies fitted the box perfectly. Don't be afraid
to cut them up. They are so pretty.

I fussy cut out a butterfly and added glitter to it. When it was nearly
 dry I gently folded up the wings.

Inking edges with a dark brown can give the item an aged look.

I used a lot of crystal glitter on the flowers. Made them look like I had just
watered them.

I picked some bracken fern and sprayed it silver. This gives the flowers some fine foliage to go with the flowers.

I had a ball using Megs Garden new moulds. So easy and affective.
I painted mine to look like silver.
If you gently brush the dried paint with some dark ink in the deeper parts and then
wipe of the excess you can achieve an aged look.

Thanks for dropping by. Have a lovely day.
