Guest Designer for Deep Oceans Challenge Blog Challenge #172-"Something New"

Happy New Year dear blogging friends!!

Welcome to my first post of 2018!

I sure hope that everyone enjoyed their time with family and friends!

I have the honour of starting this new crafting year as a Guest Designer for Deep Oceans Challenge Blog!  The theme is "Something New"...what a great way to start the year!!

So I decided to experiment/dabble with some techniques and new mediums that I got for Christmas!  I decided to create a "treasure box" for my friend Dianne using a new digi that I received...

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
 I started by painting a Graphic 45 book box with green acrylic paint...
next I added some Crackle Texture Paste (new to my stash) to two corners and dusted with Aged Rose Frantage...
next came cheesecloth attached with Decoupage...
in the bottom corner I added some chipboard key/lock forms (new to my stash) that were painted with silver metallic paint...
the keys before and after...
after adding a tiny ornamental tube filled with pink and green beads tied with a string/pink satin ribbon I adhered this new cream burlap ribbon with this gloss gel (new to my stash)...
then I had fun adding some white/pink roses...leaves and vines cut using  Memory Box die and some string/pink stain ribbon... 
top arrangement...
bottom...
I added some beads to the string attaching a key charm...
topped with a tiny pink rose bud and leaf...
this is "Valentine 12" from Morgan's Artworld...
coloured with my copics...
the string ribbon closure...
the inside...

And that is my first project for 2018!!  Now won't you please join the fabulous DT over at Deep Oceans...I want to thank Karina and the Deep Oceans team for having me as your Guest Designer!
