* Vera Lane Studio: Mermaid Trinket Box

Hello friends!


Today is new release day at Vera Lane Studio!

Janet has created a new Mermaid set as part of the Floral Park Collection, and it is stunning! Check this out .... she can be topless or wear a bikini top!

I decided to make a decorated box:



My box is papier mache. I started by giving it a coat of white gesso and, when this was dry, I pained it with gold water-based paint. I added some Sparkling Wax in Apple Green and Mid Sky Blue. 

The lid was decorated with the Mermaid images which had been coloured with markers and fussy cut. 



The sentiment was cut into strips, the edges inked and all attached onto the lid with Decopatch glue. Once in place, a second coat of Decopatch glue was applied to seal the images. Some tiny pearls and crystal stars were added along with a border of crystal gems. Diamond Sparkle Medium was added last of all to give it some shimmer.



I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
You'll find us on Facebook in a closed group, which I invite you all to join! You can find us HERE
I guarantee, you'll get a very warm welcome!




Thanks for stopping by today.
