Crafts U Print - Grandmas House

Hi there and welcome to another challenge 

And this week the theme is use digital elements.

I decided to use Grandma's house from Crafts U Print and made a treat box!  what child doesn't love goodies from their grandma??

I started with a paper mache box and used a pack of paper with a lovely design but with the consistency almost like tissue paper.
I tore them into strips and glued using mod podge and that stuff is so sticky and messy.  I gave it two coats to make sure it had a really good seal.

I cut out Grandmas house and i sure had fun cutting out all the bits to make the Decoupage.  so i layered and glued her together using that lovely thick glue that you can maneuver about to get the right shape and everyone  calls it something different and i call it magic glue!!

I added some glittery dazzles on the right side and i added some crackle glaze to her hair and a bit of glossy accents to the top of the cakes....just to give a variety of textures.  I also added a little pink tissue paper to hise the foam pads i used to get that nice curve to the top of the picture...and last but not least i fashioned some legs and glued them on to!

I then added ribbon and lace ribbon in complementary colours to the top and bottom of the box and attached a lovely homemade flower to the front.  I hope you like my effort as i don't usually make decoupage but i had lots of fun with this...Thanks Crafts U Print!!
