Hello everybody! Today is my Tresors De Luxe Reveal, and I have a Vintage look altered book box that I would love to share with you. I created it using the following Tresors De Luxe Etsy Items:
I teamed the Tresors items together with my Scraps Of Elegance September Kit~Simply Shabby Chic to create this book box that you can use to store, photos, momentos, jewelry or small keepsake items in.
I started with paper mache book box that I coated with gesso, and then layered up the front with distressed paper layers, a Doily, and a sweet Vintage image that was a free download from Janet K's blogspot.
I layered up the back of the box as well.
Here you can see where I layered in the Tresors lace, dusty pink rose, white acrylic flower spray, and the pink flower spray along with embellishments and flowers from this month's SOE kit and add ons.
For the "spine" of the book I script stamped the inked layers and then added on a beautiful Tresors lace piece.
Here you can see where I used modeling paste to simulate "book pages".
And the inside is finished out in painted and inked layers and a distressed paper bottom.
I hope that I have inspired you to take some time for yourself to create, and if you are looking for some perfect touches for your projects, Tresors De Luxe makes it easy to add not only a little elegance to your projects, but loads of texture and dimension. Hugs, ~Renea
