About Me

Maybe-not-really-20-something-anymore from Norway who likes to scrapbook and take photos documentarystyle and dreams of photojournalism when not working as a photojournalist and that's pretty much what this blog is about. And I like it this way.

~~ A box for mom ~~

Posted by Ania On Monday, December 17, 2012


Got inspired by the December PPP over at Prima that I decided to base my box for my mom on these colors :)



Such pretty colors, no?


It’s a chocolate box. Again. I know. I just really enjoy decorating these & giving them away :)


And the color combinations fit perfectly well together (probably wouldn’t have thought of combining these colors myself)


If you look close you can see how I added crackle detail to the well resin (see through candy rock crackle paint on the rocks and the roof, and picket fence white crackle paint on the logs and bucket.. I like adding subtle & sneaky details like that..


And see that little bird made of sequins? Sort of didn’t like it at first, but now I am getting worried cause I’m running out of these! They sort of are handy for such altered boxes & the style they’re made in/of (?) after all!

    I love how you added the dab of periwinkle to the color scheme. It makes it much fresher!

Dandelion. Hey I need to think about that.
