Just a very quick post for this evening: I bought a small (3 inch x 5 inch x 1.5 inch) G45 matchbook box the other day and have decorated it using the G45 French Country collection. I have also made a mini album that fits inside the matchbook. Hope you like it.
Started off by painting the box black and then covering it in strips of a piece of 12 x12 Deja Vu from the G45 French Collection
The large brass floral embellishment was painted with some of the new Ranger Patinas in Victorian Gold, Earth and Aged Bronze, (to try to make it look more like a sunflower) really love the effect these Patinas give and will definitely be doing more projects with them. Also added a bit of Treasure Gold.
Covered the inside of the drawer and distress all the edges with Vintage photo distress ink
Am really loving all the fab brass embellishment's that are available now, in fact I can't get enough of them. Have used loads of them on this project and love the way they look.
Another G45 staple used here - metal button

I kept the inside of the album fairly simple as I wanted to show off the beautiful papers.
I cut out a couple of sunflowers and added a touch of glossy accents and stickles.
Hope you have enjoyed looking at all the photos - till next time Happy Crafting
