GDT for NatashaScrapbooKorner....... "Love Flies High"

2015 started off on an exciting note with a guest design team invite from Natasha Cantwell of  NatashaScrapbooKorner on Zibbet. Here's my first project of 2 using a paper kit called black-white-kit  from her store. You can find all the links below.

Also I have a video on my Youtube channel MooreArtFromTheHeart Come take a peek.
I wanted to create a few projects showing what could be done with a paper kit besides making layouts or cards and decided covering a box for my valentines was a good way to share an idea.  First I started with a cigar box. Cover with black card stock and the paper from the kit. Laying the papers in different sizes and shape is an easy way to add pops of color through out the box.
Next I used gesso and fine glitter to soften the edges and add some sparkle. With a heart mask, gesso and more glitter little touches of love were sprinkled about. I like my glitter to stay in place so after the gesso dries and coat those areas with gel media to seal them. I took the nylon netting in pieces here and there for some wonderful texture.
The kit came with tulle which I bunched it together tied up with wire to make little pompoms. These were added around the ribbon roses. Under those clutters, I added more of the nylon netting. I used a Prima zipper pull for the handle. Added tiny metal legs and words that say it all made it look complete but wait time to add an element of surprise.
This sticking cute metal plane was just right. Finding little treasures like this is always fun and helps give the project it's theme which in this case was as the title says... "Love Flies High" I transformed the plane with gesso, glitter, nylon netting and wired hearts.

I finished the inside with more of the paper kit and some of the extra goodies Natasha sent me.
Here's the links to the store, products and the great team mates of Natasha Design Team.
Thank you for peeking in,

Thank you Ana K. I love the way the hearts do that too. I picked the black and white kit out from Natasha's shop because those colours are some of my favorite to work with. Thanks for peeking in and commenting. I appreciate it. xxx Laurie
