Shiny Stuff Box.

Having enjoyed myself playing with Fragile Papers for the last 2 weeks, I wasn't sure how I would get on with shiny stuff! But, after a good root around, I found plenty to inspire me. Also, Leandra's introduction and video was mouthwateringly tantalising.
So, here I go.
I started by die cutting some small hearts from corrugated card to give them some depth. I wanted to place objects inside them. I played around with embossed Waxed paper and some stamped backgrounds but it wasn't right!
I decided to leave my experiments overnight and had a think.
Today, I decided to make my project less complicated and simply paint a box.
I selected a heart shaped box, it is 2 inches high and painted it with 2 coats of PA fresco Little Black Dress. Next I rubbed Treasure Brass onto the edges and onto the already embossed sides and sealed it all with 2 coats of Gloss Glaze.
I Treasure Pewtered my hearts and found some shiny objects to sit inside. I sealed them with Glossy Accents but could probably have used Gloss Glaze??
I stamped in gold the Sara Naumann hearts sentiment onto black tissue paper and glued it around the lid.
I haven't decorated the inside yet but will make that another project.
I love my little shiny box! Thanks Paperartsy for the stimulation!

  18. Oh yum - what a lucky find this little box was, and the TG does a great job of highlighting that fab embossed texture on the sides. And then your topping is genius - love the hearts full of wonderful shiny pieces. At this rate, you'll top even your fragile papers creations!!

  23. The hearts ended brilliant embellishments, and I don't mean shiny, I think the glossy accent is right, resin is probably good too. Good idea to glue embossed paper to get texture on the box too.
