Hi!!! Pam here on the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Blog this fabulous Saturday in August!!! It is so hot here in Memphis that all I can think of is "Memories" of the beach, cooler weather, travel, seeing family, etc. So I decided to create a "Memories Treasure Chest" to store some of my memories in.
I began my Treasure Chest by first painting all the pieces with black paint, then assemble the pieces together when dry. Apply Weathered Crackle to the sides of the Treasure Chest. Allow each layer to dry completely. Once dry apply a good coat of Crackle Paste to the sides of the Treasure Chest.
Do a wash of Raw Sienna to the sides, allowing each wash to dry completely before reapplying.
Repeat with Red Pyrrole.
Add doily and paper strip to inside of Treasure Chest.
Create 5 tags with pattern paper and images from pattern paper.
Opposite side of tags.
Also create 6 photo squares from pattern paper and images.
For the top adhere pattern paper to top of Treasure Chest, adhere together.
Decorate with metal handle, small metal travel train, and a few travel stamps.
Add beautiful flowers and bow to handle.
Do a wash over the "Memories" with white paint. Adhere to front of Treasure Chest. Add border pattern paper strips to top and bottom wood pieces.
Add brad tops to each corner.
Add tags and photo mats to inside of Cityscapes Memories Treasure Chest.
I hope you have been inspired to create yourself a special "Memories" Treasure Chest. Make sure to check out Shanna post today...I am sure she is going to give you another fabulous inspirational project. Hugs Pam
