So for this week's make I am harking back to a lovely holiday in Lanzarote. You may not know about me that my other love is gemstones and I adore making real gemstone jewellery. So imagine my joy when I discovered that the gem Peridot is all over the beaches in Lanzarote, contained within the lava rock!
I created this little box to keep my precious salvaged Peridot in a special place.
I stamped the box all over with the gorgeous sea mesh and created a topper for the lid using a collage of different stamps from the Retro Beach set. I coloured the top with Peacock Feathers, Bundled Sage and Salty Ocean inks then stamped parts of various images to make my own collage. The bookplate is treated with Distress Paint and Treasure Gold to give it a faux patina.
Inside the box are my keepsakes and memories.
The inside bottom of the box has my collected treasures!
Here are the stunning stamps I used:
Until next time,
