Are You Blue?



Hello Everyone!
How is you day going?
I hope you are well. Thank you for stopping by!

This week's Twisted Tuesday Challenge asks the question....Are You Blue?
Find the challenge here:

The Twist is we want you to try and use only 1 other color besides blue in your creation.
I think this trinket box I made for a special friend goes along.....my other color is brown/tan....

 This started out as a plain wooden box from Hobby Lobby.
 I got out the Modge Podge and went to work "pasting" on different papers.
 I love the glossy coat the Modge Podge added.
Then, of course, I had to add some bling.....well, a lot of bling and pearls!....oh, oh, oh, and flowers!
 Here's a close up of the flowers. I painted every so lightly the leaves to go along with the other colors of the box. The bright green just stood out too much. The flower/medallion in the background with the pearl middle is a piece cut from patterned paper.
So, for my first altered box.....I think I did alright and I am HOOKED! I gotta get another and make it for myself! :)

(the inside and bottom I painted dark brown and added some goodies for Lisa inside. :)

Until next time...
Blessings...

Gorgeous altered box... brown and blue was where I started my blogging life (obsessively for a number of posts) only a couple of short months ago, and it remains a huge favourite. Wonderful distressing and great embellishments! Love a blue challenge, thank you...

What a treasure this beautiful box is!! WOW, the time that goes into these projects are what usually makes these not feasible for me, but I love seeing what others so amazingly create.
