Deco Mache Week - Pauline Wheeler


Here we are again,

Hope you've had a good week, the weekend is nearly here again!
Well, today is Pauline's turn to show you her beautiful 
Deco Mache project. 

Pauline has used the book with a hidden drawer!

Remove the drawer from the box and paint both with Scattered Straw
 Distress Paint then allow to dry...

Coat the top of the box with a multi medium, I used glue and
 seal.  Either cut the paper to size or just place onto the box 
and smooth it out. Cut strips for the sides of the box and
 for the front of the drawer. Repeat the process.
When dry trim the edges and coat with another layer of multi medium...

With your finger or a bristle brush, edge the box and drawer 
with Treasure Gold, 
I used White Fire...

Die cut two layers of the large flower and three or four of the small 
flower from the Tattered Flower die. Screw them up...

Layer and stick them together and add a large pearl in the centre...

Spray a little of the black spray onto a craft sheet. Scrunch up a bit of the leftover paper and dip it into the spray. Randomly pat it onto the
 box and drawer front. When dry add another coat of multi medium 
to the box and drawer.

Lightly spray the flower with the black spray
Die cut three leaves and the Framework die in black card. Add them 
all to top of the box.

What a lovely project, again a super gift to make for
somebody special!
