Boîte de Trésors (Box of Treasures)
Friday 7th April
Full Day Workshop
Truthfully, I have been attracted to little boxes since I was a little girl. It was fun keeping trinkets and things that I would find outside hidden and tucked away in little boxes. After I filled each box I would hide them in my room, hoping that no one would find them.
This Memory made me think that my PROJECT should have a box, a Cigar Box or any Box made of Wood. In this class we will be Playing with Paints, adding Vintage Style Paper, adding Texture with Burlap, adding Suri Ribbon, Creating Handmade Paper Flowers, using Metal Embellishments, Beautiful Knobs as Flower Centers, turning a Elegant Metal Embellishment in a Bezel for a Faux Druzzy using German Glass Glitter, adorning with a Glass Bottle & adding Charming Charms to Accent & Embellish this Boîte de Trésors.
The inside of the Boîte de Trésors will be Embellished with more Vintage Papers, Paper Flowers, Suri Ribbon, Burlap and more…..
After we are done Creating our Beautiful Boxes, I will share the technique of Making Resin Paper (Using ICE Resin & Old Book Pages/Sheet Music) and Making Resin Embellishments (Using Silicone Molds, ICE Resin & a Touch of Paint).
Together we will Create these Beautiful Paper Craft Projects. A Pocket Card with Paint Brushes adorned with a Mixed Metal Bezel and textured with color using ICED Enamels. Creating an ATC (Artist Trading Card) & a Card using Vintage Papers & Resin Paper will be Amazing Creative Play Time. There will be a little Rubber Stamping on the 3 Paper Projects with some Great Stamps.
