Today we are doing 3D creations at WhoopsiDaisy. A while back i bought this mini-shelf thingy, (don`t know what to call it,lol) at IKEA. It has just been standing there at my craft table looking all boring. So i decided to finally start doing something with it.
Here is how it looked before i started.
I have only done the first drawer, starting on the left. Please bare with me as i have only a few images...not, lol.
I first started sanding the drawer so the paint would stick more. Then i put on some areas with Distress crackle paint. I have used Picket fence, Antique linen and Weathered wood. I also used Distress ink, Vintage photo. When everything had dried i had to embellish it. Here i have a small rosetrim from Marianne Design, some punched put flowers, a metal corner, a rub-on and i decoupaged a small piece of teared paper behind the image. Lastly i put on this gorgeous handle and the sweet image. The image is available on Linnie`s new CD at Joanna Sheen, right here.
The colours i have used are these:
Vanilla, Saffron, Oatmeal, Tan and Sunkissed pink for the cheeks
Walnut, Terracotta, Spice, Honeycomb
Petrol blue, Denim blue, Fresh meadow Cool grey #1,2,3,4 and 5, Black
This is a rub on i won at a challenge i entered a while back and i think it looks gorgeous. You can also see the crackle paint showing real well.
This handle i found at Claes Olsson. Oh and i made sure to buy one for all the drawers, lol.
I hope this was a bit inspiring for you all. Hope to see you over at WhoopsiDaisy Challenges. It is so much fun to do something else than cards, so don`t let the chance get away.
