Memories Box

So over on Miriam's Crafting Blog, she is having a challenge.  The challenge is to do a project that has something to do with flowers.  It has to either have flowers or be something that can be used with flowers, like a vase.  You can submit up to 4 projects.  The prize is a $10 dollar credit to her shop. This is the first project that I will be entering in the challenge.

This is a box that I altered with Prima's Fairy Rhymes.  I used some of the chipboard pieces that are in the collection.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The chipboard fairy is from Gina's Designs and the chipboard swirl is from Leaky Shed.  I love the way this box turned out.

 In this picture, it shows the stenciling I did with modeling paste.  I used 2 different ones.  I then inked the modeling paste with Vintage Photo distressing ink by Tim Holtz from Ranger.  I also used some lace for around the edge of the lid for the box.
I then went back and added some gesso to make it look like snow on the bricks.  I think It came out awesome.  I hope you have enjoyed this project.  Thanks for stopping by!!
Keeping my fingers crossed!!
