Last week I received this wonderful sweet box from Deb at Damboise Designs Say it With Letters Etsy Shop NEST. Thanks Deb!! It is one of the biggest sellers for her wonderful Etsy store....oh my! My wish list is long so many wonderful creations to decorate with. Super cute and super fun!!! You can start from a babies name to many Holiday ideas, and gifts for that special someone. Check it out HERE!!! Also she has a BLOG filled with wonderful ideas and the cutest little children. This is my second DT piece. I will have many more as soon as I can get my list down to reality....lol!!!
I began with painting the sides with Golden paints Titan Buff, then using the 7 Gypsies line Conservatory pp I glued down the traced letters with the pp. Then added a fine line of the Ranger Glossy Accents using the German Glass Glitter which Deb sells and the glitter is an amazing product, it is real glass and it actually tarnishes over time and is so beautiful. A must!! Sprinkled the glitter on. Oh yeah before I did that I used a small amount of Tim Holtz Antique Linen by Ranger to ink the letters slightly. The pp itself was just perfect but you know me gotta add...lol!! So I thought it needed the felt flower, I designed the petals myself. Then added a half of a felt ball hand sewing the tiny glass beads on. The buttons are vintage buttons from an old sewing factory here in NC. I have an old huge pickle jar I have had since 1995 and have used almost half of them over the years on projects. The twine is Bakers twine which Deb sells too. The twigs are Rosemary twigs from my garden after I took off the greenery after it dried.
The bird is a Christmas bird from the 50's that had a clip on it I took it off and glued in the S.....perfect fit. The flower vine is Prima, I coated with Tattered Angels Glam. Then back over with the Golden Titan Buff. I hope you like it. I do have more pics of the pizza oven so stay tuned will show asap. Have a WONDERFUL Happy weekend, Cyber Hugs, Dawn Gallop :o)
