Faux palette and Faux leather mini album!

It's the beginning of a new month and am ready to share my DT project for Rhedd's Creative Spirit for March! The theme as always is anything goes Mixed media or altered art!

I have an upcycled project for you. I have worked an empty watch box this time combining techniques of faux palette, decoupage and faux leather...ALL IN ONE!!!

Here is what I have recycled

I started off by first coating  it with gesso.

Then comes the play with Chalk paints to give the faux palette look!
I love the rustic, vintage look!!!

A closer look at the palette and distressed finish!

I have then decoupaged a floral tissue on to the faux palette! A rose looks lovely against the brown wood...what say???


A look at the completed box!

I have a die cut little heart on the closure!

That's not all! To know what's on the inside, I have a small video. Click to view and am sure you will like it!

Do let me know your views and hope to see you play along this month.
Do visit the blog to see what the team has in store for you.

Until my next creative journey,
Happy crafting and recycling!
