Pearls Of Wisdom!

This week Hels has set here Sunday Stampers theme and it's 'Pearls'
Now tecnically my entry is only half correct as i totally forget to add some stamping.. Er i mean i stamped on the inside and forgot to take pics *cough cough splutter*
But i do think Hels would want me to share this as i did use her tuturial from the july issue of craft stamper to create the perfect rustic painted box
{i had tryed this paint/pva tecnique many times.. and many times i had failed}
Till now that is.. Look how good it looks {if i do say so myself}
So thank you madam, I am truely greatful.
Here's a view of the top...
Complete with Grungepaper Roses which i created using the largest flower from the Artistic Stamper 'flower power' stamp set as i still dont own Tim flower die.. whats wrong with me.. i feel a spend coming on!!
Anyways.....
As you can see i not only have pearl beading round the edges but also a cute little pearl heart complete with danglie bits! {no sniggering Hels}
I finished it with a couple of Tims idea-ology trinkets. {these and the alterable box are available from Jennie @ The Artistic Stamper}
I'm not a vintage kinda girl, but i do love a bit of the old shabby chic!
Tell me what you think..I always welcome your feedback x

Your box is beautiful! Love all of it.

In answer to q's on my blog: the cuby holes storage I got from a carboot, it is cd storage shelving.
I don't drink coffee but hubby does, some of them are coffee jars, some are Yankee candle jars (if you put them in the freezer when they are finishe you can 'pop' the rest of the wax out.
The rest I got at a car boot all on the same day but from all different stalls, I think I was meant to have them!!!!

The box looks fantastic and I love that crackle. I have not used this technique. Do your apply the PVA then the acrylic paint? That's the only copy of Craft Stamper I don't have LOL. I love all your detail on top of the box too and that pearl heart is gorgeous. Tracy Evans x
