Something A Little Different

Hi Folks
Only one more working day and then it will be the weekend.  A busy one too as my daughter will be getting packed ready to go to Magalluf to work for the summer.  She is going out on Saturday night clubbing with all her friends so we have planned lunch out on Sunday with all the family.  

Today's crafty share is something a little different for me.  I found this little MDF tray and containers in my local craft shop.  So I decided to decorate it up and put it in my craft room for holding my scoring tools etc.

I started out by painting all the pieces with some very light pink acrylic paint.  For the containers I tore up some decopatch papers and stuck them randomly over using decopatch glue.  I did a couple of layers to make sure the containers were all covered.  I used some black decorative border strips that I had in my stash for around the top of the containers and around the base.  I added a flower I made to the centre of the middle container and some purple glittered butterflies to the outer containers.  

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Crafty Ribbons - Anything but a card
CRAFT - Not a card
Butterfly Challenge - Glamorous butterflies
