This is Emeline sharing with you an embellished hexagonal white box.
The highlight of this box is Melissa Frances' new Metal Flea Market Find Appliques. The ornate silver applique was gessoed in white and adhered atop the hexagonal box.
The edges of the box were decorated with pink ruffles which gives the box a beautiful girly effect.
I had to restrain myself from using too many of these beautiful ornate pieces on my box! Look how gorgeous white resin contrasts itself against the silver (gessoed) appliqué. To top it off, I found some silver sequins and added it for an extra kick.
Undeniably, Melissa Frances manufactures one of the best (may I add prettiest) non-paper embellishments. There are many embellishments in the market and pretty and sturdy ones like these made by Melissa Frances are sorely lacking. Wooden chipboards, white resins, silver metallic ones are really beautifully cut with intricate details.
In my project here, I created a couple of tags and tag jackets. Due to the hardiness of these beautiful embellishments, I used tags and card stock for added strength so that the tags and envelope will not look flimsy.
Here, I layered white resin onto metallic ornate structure. The contrast is simply gorgeous. Raw, untreated in its basic form.
Hope you'll find some time this week to carve out some creative time for yourself!
This is Emeline and I'm really glad to be back at Melissa France's and am looking forward to creating more with one of my favourite brands!
This week, I created a pack of embellished envelopes using Melissa Frances' pattern papers and marbled vellum papers. I really liked the idea of personalising the front (and back) of an envelope so I embellished with an array of Melissa Frances' white resin embellishments and chipboards.
These envelopes can be used for gift cards, hand written letters and it can even be part of your project life documentation.
Look forward to the recipient's reaction when you gift one of your handmade envelopes to them! Thank you for dropping by!
