Haha! No we are not taking up
bloodsports............... we are
revisiting an old topic with a
twist or two
Next Sunday is Mothering Sunday
and in case you are wondering
what to do aside from chocs and
flowers here is Claire Jackson to
the rescue with a beautiful little
"I started by painting a small wooden
trinket box with shades of green
and blue chalk paint on the outside
and pearlescent paint on the inside.
I then stamped the flowers and leaves
around the sides and a border flourish
around the top.
The leaves were coloured with alcohol markers
and white gel pen, before I added Glossy Accents
to the leaves and stems and
Enamel Accents on the flowers.
The border on the top was decorated
in the same way.
The centre piece was made from chipboard pieces
painted and glazed.
To finish off I put patterned paper
on the bottom.
The little trinket box even has a small magnet
to snap the lid shut.
It would make a lovely gift on its own,
filled with chocolate or with some jewellery in it."
Thank you Claire, that really is a
lovely box and fun to make I shouldn't
