Mixed Media Spring Floral Box by Tracey Sabella

Hi Everyone!
It's Tracey Back to share a mixed media spring floral box featuring ScrapBerry's gorgeous In Bloom Collection paired with lovely blossoms, resin and polymer pieces.

 
This paper mache box is covered with In Bloom Abundance paper.

Close-Ups
A mix of gorgeous ScrapBerry's Cherry Blossoms and Stemmed Lily's with a few flowers and leaves from my stash for a floral spring bouquet to decorate the top of the box.

The lovely ScrapBerry's French Journey polymer clock and Fairy Tale resin daisies are tucked into the cluster.

I embossed craft metal adhered to a piece of chipboard with a floral design to coordinate with the paper. I brushed it with white gesso, allowed to dry, then randomly rubbed crackle paint across the surface. I let this sit over night to allow the crackle to dry naturally, then spritzed with two colors of mist.  I also added texture around the cluster with Prills.

**Tip**
If you will be applying gesso or acrylic paint to craft metal, be sure to lightly sand the
surface before embossing to help the gesso stick to the surface.

The March/April ScrapBerry's challenge is to create a
spring project and is open to crafters worldwide.

You can view all the details HERE.
I can't wait to see what you create.
