The inside of the boxes has been painted with Viva metallic, the first one in lilac and the second one in purple. I cut a strip here to fit round the matchbox, and glued it down.
The mini book has been made from a strip of designer paper, with scraps of the marble paper for the covers. I added some gem stones to the front cover. I added another scrap of marble paper to the front of the 'drawer', and a TH hitch fastener as knob.
The plain side of the paper has been stamped and given a hand-written quote about time.
The strip of paper for the second box was narrower, so I painted the ends first with purple paint before fixing the marble paper. The 'drawer' was made the same as the first one.
The book has been made from a strip of scrap paper. I used mini prints of some of my paintings for 2 sides, and added a quote on the others. The end papers have been made from sequin waste with a star pattern.
I had fun making these little pieces, and tomorrow I will share some more creations I made with the marble paper. I am linking to Simon Says Stamp and Show, where the theme this week is 'Paint it Up'.
Here's wishing you all a great day. Get messy, have fun and thanks for visiting!
