Off The Page Metal Heart Box And A Layout

Hello friends! I hope you have been having a wonderful weekend? 
Julianne here today, sharing two projects with you. Firstly a heart shaped metal container which has been decorated, and a layout using the new Madeleine range from Bo-Bunny. 

For my first project, I started with this heart-shaped metal container (which I have had in my cupboard for way too many years!). I then sprayed it with white gesso, and gave it a coat of Mod Podge for protection. 

I added ribbon and pearls around the outside edge of the base. On the top, I added a paper doily, an Imaginarium Designs chipboard doily which has been enamel embossed, Denise's flourishes which have been coated with white gesso, hand-made paper roses (made with Marion Smith's Motley papers), and an Imaginarium Designs chipboard dragonfly that has been powder embossed.  

I even covered the inside to make sure it looked pretty. :)



For my second project I have created a layout using Bo Bunny's Madeleine range. I just adore the soft colours in this range - so, so very pretty. 


This is one of my all time favourite photos of my daughters (it is usually hard to get them to pose together without making faces). I have layered my background papers, and done a lot of fussy cutting around frames, flowers, and birds. 

I have powder embossed the title and cogs with Antiquities Frosted Crystal embossing powder. The balloon has been coated with grey ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. The corner flourish has been embossed with Enamel Embossing powder. And of course I have finished the page off with a little bling, and some glittered Prima roses. 

I have decorated the fussy-cut frames with Liquid Pearls in various matching colours. And added a dash of Kindy Glitz to the flowers. 


Thanks for dropping by! I hope we'll see you back here tomorrow for even more inspiration.
