Hi again and its time for the final reveal!
I have completed my jewellery chest and I am very happy with how it has turned out 🙂
I started off by picking out a pile of embellishments that I knew that I definitely wanted to use. This pile included faux flowers, gems, doilies and some fussy cut paper pieces too. I also knew that I wanted to use Dew Drops – tiny glass nuggets purchased via e bay – as part of my design.
I then started to layer the elements on to the lower left side of the lid:
I edged both the outer and inner lid faces with ribbon trim. The outer trim is a voile rose ribbon and the inner is a braided trim. Both are in neutral tones. I used glossy accents as well as my heat gun to adhere all the pieces onto my Jewellery chest.
Once my pieces were all placed and adhered, I highlighted raised areas with both White Gesso and Blue Distress paint. I also used some lilac distress ink on the lid interior, over the area s that I dry embossed:
I then added the glass gems with glossy accents and tweaked any areas that I felt needed more emphasis, by added touches of gesso or distress paint. I also added some spritzes’ of an aqua spray ink to lift the colour scheme:
Here is a close up of my fussy cutting:
