Casket


Afternoon everyone I hope you are all having a great weekend. Today I am sharing my little casket I created following Julie Ann Lee's creation on Paper Artsy blogg which you can see here. It really is worth checking out Julie Ann's casket because it really is fab and she is so lovely.

Well my casket is full of little secrets which in my imagination is owned by a forlorn woman whoes greatest love is missing. The caskets contains a map rolled up to protect it, as it has the place marked on it, where he was last seen. There is a post card from him, telling her how much he loves her. A crumpled note requesting a clandestine meeting before he he leaves, and flower from the garden where they met. There is a a tiny bottle with a clipping of his hair, and of course a heart to represent their love.

Now that's enough of my romanticism here is the casket. All the materials used are from Paper Artsy except the glossy accents and embellishments which are from various places.

The box is coated in sage and left to dry. I then stencil flowers with grunge paste on the top and again leave to dry.


Next I coat the sides and parts of the top with crackle glaze and while this is drying, I paint my flower with a mix of sage and beach hut. I paint the box with the same colour and as it's drying watch it do it's magic. 

I coat the flowers with treasure gold and stamp onto the top and sides using stamps from this set, which I won in a blog challenge at Paper Artsy.

I'm adoring this set and have some ideas of what I want to use them for which I'll share later.


I added the flower and metal embellishment (Julie Ann creates a great feather but I felt my box was too small)


And now for the inside





Thank you so much for looking and as always would love to read your comments
