It's All About Containment...or Containers in Other Words!

Another new challenge has started at Miriam's Crafting Blog and this time we were tasked with containers. Well sure...I could have done a simple paper covered box with some pearls and ribbon but THAT IS SO NOT ME!!! Plus I Officially opened my store on the 1st so I had to do something to work them both in right?

With that in mind, I altered a big round tin, with peacocks, and lace, and doilies, and feathers, and pearls and so many fun and pretty products!

So from Miriam's store, I used these beautiful peacock embellishments and then painted them with Adirondack Acrylic color stream and then topped that with Tattered Angels Pixie Dust glitter paint.

And also these two colors of 5mm flat back pearls, teal and hunter respectively.

From my store, I used a doily, crocheted lace, and some peacock feathers. Everything else was from my stash (flowers, frame, and tin).

The doily I stained with Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers Distress stain and then got it wet and scrunched it till I got the mottled look I was going for.

And here is the result!

So come on over and join the fun at Miriam's challenge and try to win a gift certificate! She has so much awesome stuff and the BEST prices!!!
