today i have such a cool little treasure box to share with you all. i started by using Eileen Hulls toolbox die (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/product/660332/sizzix-scoreboards-xl-die-box-toolbox), one of my favourites and not necessarily old but one of the original ‘must have’ ones from here collection; which i cut out of black mat board.

then it was time to get out my DecoArt media (http://decoart NULL.com/mixedmedia/fluid-acrylics) line and play.

i started by layer a layer of crackle paint onto all pieces. once dry i started adding layers of paint starting with cobalt turquoise
decoart crackle paste followed by Phthalo Bluelayering deco crackle and paint and finally to bring it all together, Transparent Red Iron Oxidethird colour decorate media how yummy is that!!deco art crackle and paint  i love how this turned out!!!  the crackle, that paint and the black mat board peaking through…  makes me very happy

now that is where i got lost in the whole process but here are some pictures of my finished projectIMG_0774

the beauty on top of my treasure chest is the fanciful fairy (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/product/660095/sizzix-thinlits-die-fanciful-fairy) by Peter Hughes for Sizzix. i cut two opposites out and glued them together to sit on top of the box. i had though of trying to make her into a mermaid but she is so perfect just the way she is! such detail on her skirt and wings! decoart treasurebox inside decorate treasure boxi treasured my vacation and the marvellous project i created to hold my treasured seaglass
