August Challenge - Rhedd's Creative Spirit DT

Hello everyone!

Please don't forget to enter my blogoversary candy here.

It's the first of August (really?? Already!), and therefore time for a brand new challenge at Rhedd's Creative Spirit. As always it's Anything altered art goes.

I got my reward voucher for The Works through a few weeks ago, and found a set of lovely circular papiermache boxes. They were only 8cm in diameter, and came in a pack of two for 99p. Well, it would have been rude not to!

So I painted them black, and then set to decorating them. For the first, I opted for a purple and green colour scheme.
I used some paper from Craftwork Cards, flowers from WoC and finished off with glass beads, coloured green with my Promarkers and washi tape.

I wanted a different colour for the second box, so went with a pink and cream shabby feel...
After I chose some pink dotty paper, I found an old magazine freebie doily that was a perfect fit, added more flowers and glass beads, and finished the lid with a foam heart and a heart charm from the Hobby House.
The bottom I covered in a Parisian themed washi tape, and some of my favourite lace.

I only have a tiny bit of this lace left! Must remember to check Hobbycraft to see if they still have it in stock!

And there they are. My cute little boxes that cost almost nothing to make. And the foam heart is from a pack I bought when I first started crafting about 2 years ago! They are probably close to my oldest  crafting supplies.

Now, do yourselves a favour, and go take a peek at the stunning creations my fellow teamies have concocted for you, and then why not come and play? As always, we have a gorgeous prize. This month we're being sponsored by Fernli Designs again, and their stuff is just too gorgeous!

See what I mean?

Have a great day, and an ever greater weekend!
