A Vintage Love Story- Shabby Chic Decoupage Box

Hello guys
Welcome to my blog...today's project is DT inspiration for ItsyBitsy where the theme all this month is Decoupage. To participate in the ongoing challenge please click HERE. For a full tutorial of this project, please click HERE.
Here are a few pics of my project.
 Here I have used crackle medium along with chalk paints from ItsyBitsy to give this amazing texture to my box. The central image is decoupages using Matt decoupage glue and then sealed with varnish.

 To give this a vintage feel, I distressed the edges using Archival inks. To give my project a shabby feel, I have used loads of flowers and elements from ItsyBitsy.


I am putting my project for the following challenges:
  1. HLS Mixed Media Challenge - May 2018- Gold
  2. Through the Purple Haze challenge Challenge#144 - Add Pearl or Lace
  3. More Mixed Media Challenge - Anything Goes optional pink
  4. ARTastic Challenge Blog - Hello May - the entire artwork has inspired my project. I have included the bird, the flowers and the color scheme in my work.
