A Distressed Caddy and Easter Egg Blog Candy
When Gillian received a set of the Papier Mache Chest Boxes she knew instantly that the smallest of the two would be perfect for storing her Distress stains.
The chest has been stained with Distress Inks in Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain), Distress Stain in Vintage Photo, spritzed here and there with Perfect Pearl Mists in Heirloom Gold and Perfect Pearl.
Gillian used Ideaology Salvage Stickers and elements from the Lost and Found, as well as Seasonal and Crowded Attic Paper Stashes form the Tim Holtz Paperie range to decorate the entire chest.
Areas of the chest have been highlighted with Metallic Rub On Paste Kit 2. The flower was made using Grungepaper
At the end Gillian spotted a couple of strips from the Kraft Resist Paper Stash from the Tim Holtz Paperie range on her desk and a light bulb moment happened, and she thought they would be kind of cool to try and create a faux corrugated effect to add some dimension to the front of the box. She inked with distress Stain in vintage Photo to`create the trim also and to decorate the box just above the metal clasp closure.
