DT Project No 3 by Lucy Edmondson - Featuring Kaisercraft Art of Life



Hi, Lucy here with my final project using the Kaisercraft Art of Life collection, and another home decor item. I used a cardboard chest of drawers which was a horrible shade of green and had contained toiletries, so first of all I painted it with Fresco Finish Little Black Dress. The drawers had fabric drawer pulls which I decided to retain. I cut pieces of the various papers to fit the sides, base, and drawer fronts and stamped them with a selection of the stamps as before, using Smoky Grey and Onyx Black ink.




I stamped the leaves from the Art of Life stamp set onto the grid paper and made rolled roses from a die as before. I added some black die cut leaves and some pearls and arranged these on the top.




I wanted to use the knobs from the sticker sheet included in the paper pack so I cut into the centre of the circle of the knob and then cut out the centre and pulled the fabric pulley through it.



To finish off, I used black dominoes for the feet. I hope you have enjoyed my makes with this gorgeous range. Look out next week for beautiful artwork from my teamie, Diana, and don't forget to leave comments to be in with a chance in the prize draw!

Brilliant to use the dominoes as the feet, and what a fabulous use of these papers - oh so elegant - this would grace any dressing table.

From childhood I have always had a 'thing' about sets of little drawers and even my brother remembered and commented when he saw the all ones I have in my craftroom, lol! Our childhood was a very long time ago, ha! ha! I love how you've given these little drawers a makeover Lucy and they are now beautiful and elegant.

Hugs
