Saturday Savers - Patchwork/Collage week - Sylvie

Another little beauty by Sylvie today, who upcycled a soap box and turned it into a gorgeous storage box for embellishments (buttons here.. but could be anything). 
A lot of work went into this as you can see and it's a beautiful way to use the Kaisercraft papers and stamps. 
Hope you will let her know what you think in a comment below.. 

I started from a box that used to contains soaps. I painted the edges with  Fresco Finish paint Mermaid, dried and then stamped the Kaisercraft crackle with Black Soot Distress.
I then cut some Kaisercraft papers to fit the box and inked the edges with the balck Distress again.
I stamped the Coat Rack and Dress Form on light papers 

I used the Crafter's Workshop mask Harlequin to apply the Dreamweaver embossing paste (Matte Black) here and there. 
I glued my papers on the blox.
I made flowers with the Marianne D Chinese Rose die and added some Cinnamon Stickles as well as a bead in the centre. 
I cut out the butterfly and bottle from the 75 cents paper and finished with a coat of Fresco Finish glaze (matte)

I painted the little wooden feet with Fresco Finish Vintage Lace and aged them with Distress ink Vintage Photo as well as Treasure Gold White Fire. 
I then took a piece of cardstock I folded to make three compartments in the box, painted with Fresco Finish Mermaid and added stamped images. Also cut and glued some butterflies and other images cut from the Kaisercraft papers.
Lastly, I added a coat of  Fresco Finish Matte glaze all over.
