Morning crafty friends, today I have another Faith Pocock Studio project to share with you
As always - the trick to Faiths projects is unpackage them and lay them out flat, that way if there are a lot of pieces then you get an idea where they go
I started assembling and gluing the drawers first
Then did the same with the main body of the project
At this stage I always walk away. I personally like to let the glue set overnight to save myself any frustration.
Next day I painted drawers, main body and frame in watered down black paint
After all the prep, the fun begins. Choosing paper.... for this project I picked out Stamperia - Mechanical Fantasy.
Tracing and measuring around each area I wanted to cover
For the sides I found a round circle punch the easiest to get a nice round circle
Distress all the edges for that grungy look
Setting everything aside I worked on the frame
TIP: when gluing the boarder of the frame down, only glue the edges like photo, that way you can change the image/photo whenever you want to update it
Attach frame to main body and insert drawers
TIP: if you find drawers are a bit frim to open, just lightly sand the sides and top edge, then rub candle wax over surface
I LOVE anything to do with storage - you can never have enough of it. This now sits on my craft desk full of flowers.
Until next time.. happy crafting
