Cabinet

The main project of the ArtsyCrafts weekend was this cabinet. It involved a lot of different techniues. First we covered the cabinet with acrylic paint and then sprayed inside and out with Tattered Angels' Glimmer Mist. Backgrounds were made to fill the apertures inside the cabinet; these were made of both metal, which was embossed and coloured, and paper which was coloured or stamped upon, or both. The embellishments inside were made using assorted techniques: stamping & painting acetate; using beeswax; making transfers.
The frame of the door was covered in metal which I had embossed and then it was coloured using alcohol inks and Glimmer mists.
The fleur de lys at the top was chipboard which was sprayed with Glimmer Mist and embossed.
I enjoyed making this so much, I bought a second cabinet so that I could decorate another in a different colour (see future post).
