French Inspired Keepsake Boxes

The inspiration continues as I created some special keepsake boxes using more wonderful graphics from The Graphics Fairy.

This first one is a vintage wood box. Hand painted cottage cream with added vintage post card to the lid and sealed with Triple Thick to make it look like it is right in the wood.
You hear me talk about Triple Thick in many of my projects. You can find this glaze at most art and craft shops. Takes some practise to use, but the results are wonderful. One coat is usually all that is needed.

This next one is larger and hand painted light pale pink with two french graphics on the lid and trailing roses throughout.

Thanks to The Graphics Fairy for these amazing designs. These two boxes will be available in my etsy shoppe Wednesday night the 12th. Just in time for Thursday Marketplace from Shabby Cottage Shops and my etsy boutique.

See you soon.
Happy Creating, Celestina Marie
