Here is the beginning of the Treasure Chest of Mini's of our trip to Cancun, Mexico 2 years ago, better late than never! The box is from Hobby Lobby, I painted the outside with grey, then crackle medium and then white paint. The crackle did not work all that great so I took the black distress ink and lighttly ran it over the outside. I thought that the cracks showed up a lot better. I then ran over it with Lindy's to give it the blue color. I used the Tim Holts flower die to cut out the flowers using Crinlin which can be found at Joann's. This fiber cuts very well and dies perfectly. I also stained the star fish with Lindy's. Stay tuned for the albums that will fit into the treasure chest. (well I hope that they all fit into the chest, I tend to make fat mini's)
What a great idea for an ATC Swap, thanks Tmika for hosting!! The idea was to create an ATC representing your state. I used the metal tape from the hardware store to cover the arch and Lindy's stains for the card and the I am Roses Flowers. It's a lot of fun creating on these tiny pieces.
