Although the challenge theme was ours cause we were the lucky winners (if you voted for us, thanks very much), it was still a bit hard to come up with something.
For this challenge I made a jewel box, the kind of box that has a cute little ballet dancer on top that twirls arround and has a little music box inside. Of course the ballet dancer has a pink tutu with glittery Jewels and a little crown on her head. and it will all be sweet and girlish.................
Uh...... well.... almost right.........................
There is a pink ballet dancer twirling around, there is a tutu, glitter and a little crown , just take a closer look and you will see this totally fits the Dance Macabre theme. Lot's of pics and some explaing further in this post.
the heart is clip art found on the net, printed 3 times, coloured, cut out and covered with glossy accents then layered to get more dimension.
the mirror is made of alluminum foil and cardboard
there is some trim around the edges of the mirror and the drawers
the tutu is made of tulle, it was white and I used distress ink to make it pink
to age the mirror I crumpled the foil made it flat again and used alcohol ink
here a closer look of the side of the chest of drawers, it took a lot of layers and different colours of paint, crackle medium and sanding to make it look old.
I got some aging tips from Rick.
a better look of the sparkles on the tutu, hard to see on a pic
and finally the back of the chest of drawers, here you can see the different paint layers better.
O almost forgot, here a pic of what the chest of drawes looked like before I got my hands on it
