Firstly remove hinges and closure and give box a light wash of white. As you can see I painted first then remembered to remove fittings, whoops!!
Cut to size patterned paper, I used some from a Stamperia Lilac pad.
Emboss some snip art chipboard pieces, I used Luscious powders mixed with clear embossing powder.
Edge each piece of pattern paper with a soft lilac ink. ( I decided to add lilac paint sponged around the edges later, so this step can be left out if you decide to do the same)
Glue on all pieces of patterned paper.
Glue on the snip art around a topper from the same lilac paper pad
Add a lilac pink applique to the top right corner
Re attach hinges and fastener
Embellish with a mix of mulberry flowers, foam flowers, silk leaves,
die cut leaves, flourishes,
and lilac gem stones.
Altered eclectics anything goes

Make my monday - embossing wet or dry
