Gilded Lily Storage Canister

Hey all, today I would like to share a DT project for Faith Pocock Craft Studio Ltd created using the Graphic 45 Gilded Lily papers.  Would you believe that wehn I first saw these papers I was not at all fussed on them and actually passed them up, that is until they were included in my July kit from Faith :).   So I thought I would revisit an old project from last year and create another storage canister.

Once again I have used three paper mache boxes and recycled cereal boxes.

Once again I have lightly sanded the cereal box

and then glued it to the little paper mache boxes like so ...

I created a hinge using some tyvek...

and then painted everything with some gesso

and now here is the finished box.
 I have added some coffee dyed seam binding as a closure

I have decorated the box with pearl trims and paper flowers.  All of which can be found here

Well readers that is it .... that is my post for today. As always, please come join us on....

till next time...
....remember to live your bliss......

Timekeeper Paper Bag Mini Album

  Hi all, I just finished this gorgeous mini album and I couldn't wait to share it with you all.  Earlier this month I was lucky to receive the Timekeeper papers from Marion Smith Designs and a whole heap of metal filigree in my Creative kit from Faith Pocock Craft Studio Ltd, oh and a big stack of paperbags.   I was so inspired that I started creating straight away.

 Living in Australia, it is a little hard to source the paper bags and I have been dying to try my hand at a paperbag mini album for years...and now I could.  I have used 5 of these paper bags and assembled them using Ozegran hybrid method of the hidden hinge and stack the deck. You can find the tutorial for this here.  This mini will be an upcoming tutorial, so I won't give any secrets away just yet, but here are some pictures before I started covering the mini...

And here are all the glamour shots.

Alternatively you can check this out over one my new youtube channel.  Yes I am back doing videos again, so please subscribe.

Well readers that is it .... that is my post for today.  I hope you come back next week for my usual Faith Pocock Craft Studio Ltd post where I will be sharing a little something made with Graphic 45.
As always, please come join us on....
