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!

Photobucket PhotobucketFirst, 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.  :)
Photobucket 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?
