A Potpourri...


 

box. It started as a plain papier-mâché blank that was a Hobbycraft bargain 75p in the sale after Christmas. Thought it was about time I altered something in my ever growing pile of things to alter !
A perfect Mothers Day gift and I filled it with home grown lavender which I dried last year. All the paints and stamps used are by PaperArtsy. If you haven't tried the Fresco paints, the chalk finish makes them great for layering and they dry super quick too!




 
 
I am going to enter my project into the following challenges:
Crafting for all Seasons: No Designer Papers
That Craft Place: Mum and/or Flowers
