Twilight by Crafts & Me

This image is from Crafts & me called Twilight & can be found here. She is coloured with Polychromo pencils, as is the whole picture. The brick wall, the ledge, arch & sky are all drawn in by myself to create the scene. The die is a Magnolia DooHickey called Love Lamp Post & the tag die is part of a DooHickey club set. Added glitter around the edge of the image, ribbon from stash & the stars were bought at a local garden centre several years ago & was in my Xmas stash.The papers were from scraps, so no idea whose they are.

Hidden Treasures Trunk

This is a project I have been working on for a while. Its a video & tutorial from Paper Phenomenon & is called Hidden Treasures Trunk. It holds a mini scrapbook & clipboard in the drawers as pictured.
Kathy makes the most brilliant 3D projects & sells the tutorials & or the videos.

The trunk is made of chipboard or greyboard, as its sometimes called here in the UK.
It has a secret drawer on one side, which can hold mementos or one of the scrapbooks. The handles are Forever Moments Bureau Handles by Tonic.all the brown strips are chipboard stained with Walnut Stain DI & then smeared with Glossy Accents to make it look like leather.
The top opens on hinges to reveal an opening.
The papers are Tim Holtz Wallflower paper collection, which is absolutely gorgeous.
The front unclips using magnets to reveal a place for a photograph with a ready made frame & another drawer. The handles are Mini Ring Handles by Tonic.
Here is the inside of the drawer. Lastly another picture of the box,
The clips & brads all came from an Etsy store called Forest Era, they have loads of hardware, all comes from Hong Kong & took about 10 day from ordering The sides have magnets which can be opened, so that the front panel drops down.
I now have to add photos to the scrapbooks, but am so pleased with this & its on display in my lounge..
