Update: Finished project - Little Darlings Mini Chest
Update: I added some ribbon!! Here are the finished photos-- look below for project directions. :)
I had such a good time playing with these papers by Graphic 45! The papers are from the Little Darlings collection. They are so adorable!
First, I painted this little chest of drawers by Kaisercraft. I then covered and decorated the drawers and the outside of the chest. I embellished the front of the drawers with pieces of the borders paper and pearls from want2scrap.
Next, I wanted to add a 3-D effect with some ribbon and fabric flowers. I started with white, but I wanted a bit of color; so I decided to mist them with Perfect Pearl Mist - Turquoise from Ranger. I love these mists. You can spray lightly for a pastel effect, or more heavily for a darker shade, and I love the glitter sparkle when they dry. :)
I dried them with my embossing gun (gotta love versatility! ~just be careful not to get too close, the mesh melts!) Then I glued a little pearl inside to dress them up a little more.
After seeing the flowers, I decided to mist my ribbon bow, too. Perfect match! I love when my experiments work! :)
So what do you think? It was all pretty easy... do you think you'll try it?
