Based on a book blog hop

Scroll down for the Fabulous 50 blog hop...

You should be here from my crafty friend Anita over at but if not please head over to Tanya - to start over and you will be so happy you didn't  miss anythin!!!!

Okay so for this hop I wanted to use my favorite books and make a box and album on all four books but I just didn't have all the time today so I was only able to finish this box before I stared cooking.

This is the top of the box and just the beginning...
These letters I got from the DCWV embellishment box and even though they were very glittered in red I had to use the silver glitter paint to give it the Cullen sparkle

I love how the box looks like its leather
really I just applied black Gesso and used wild strokes of bright red paint repeatedly but you can still see the cool

Doesn't this look so cool!!!!
The flowers are flowers that I have from my own stash

I painted the flowers with silver glitter paint
I am not done yet but the inside is going to have both worlds decorated within and the album is going to be loaded with my favorite quotes and photos.

I hope you like it!! I will be posting a youtube video when I am all done with the inside and the album.

Don't forget to leave comments so you can be eligible for the candy.

  4. Wow! This is soooo amazing! I love it! You did such an awesome job with painting it and all the glitter... Wow! Swoon, swoon. ;) I am so inspired to try out that awesome painting technique with the Gesso. Also, I LOVE that tree paper! Do you know where it's from? I'm also wondering how you distressed your edges... Do you have a distressing machine or a special technique? I would so appreciate it if you could either email me or leave a comment on my blog with the answers. TFS your beautiful creation!
