Wood Treasure Box - Tattered Angels

(update - a tutorial on the flowers will be coming soon!)

This month for Tattered Angels we are showcasing different 'Mist-ables". For this first project, I worked with a wood treasure box from Walnut Hollow. If you haven’t tried misting on wood, you’ve got to give it a go – it’s a match made in scrap heaven. There are so many cool wood embellishments on the market right now it’s easy to try it on something small without committing to a large project.

I misted the box with Mint Chocolate Chip Chalkboard, Silver Sugar & Sugar Plum Fairy Glimmer Mist.

The flowers and leaves were die-cut from coffee filters, then misted with Spring Rain, Spanish Moss, Winter Pine (leaves) and Cherub Pink, Sugar Plum Fairy, Haunted Shadows (flowers). Coffee filters take mists beautifully as you would imagine – the colours blend so easily, and it gives a very soft feminine look. The lace was misted with Haunted Shadows glimmer mist.

Once the box was dry, I painted the drawer knob with Pewter Glimmer Glaze – it gives a beautiful metalic look, without being too ‘shiny’.

Then I misted the entire project with Pearl glimmer mist for a little extra shimmer.
