Now on to my project:

This is an altered jewelry box, the actual color is a mix of natural wood and black. So instead of covering the black portion with pp I decided to stamp on it using my White Stazon and of course used stickles to outline the design. I used lavander, orange peel, pink, candy cane, turquoise and my fave color, platinum! See the glittery round handle (center of the flower), I spread glossy accents and then pour on the glitters, super fun technique I discovered from Mel, you can also do the same for your brads and buttons.

On a personal note...

I'm again under medication, doctor's order I must get some rest...I got a good night sleep because of the cough syrup that made me drowsy. I've been sleeping without aircon for almost a week now but my bff is teasing me about my messy bedroom that he says collects dust and thus maybe affecting my health. Well it does sank on me that half of my bedroom is occupied by my scrap stuff, most of them are open and in display. Yaikks, can scrapbooking be hazardous to my health?
Hmmm, should I jump into digital and give away my stuff? I had a dream/nightmare about it long time ago, that I gave away all my stuff as a RAK, can you believe that? When I told my scrappin friends about it they started choosing which ones they would like to have *LOL* . But I'm seriously considering options to resolve my dilemma.

I'm thinking of buying a cabinet that would fit all my scrapstuff and maybe ask permission from my housemates to place it in the living room instead of my bedroom. Whatever excess that would not fit in the cabinet I would give away, sounds fair? Now where can I find that big cabinet? *LOL* So I guess I have to do away with this crappy organization I currently have...

for the sake of my health. Wish me luck!

Congratulations to you too, Marix! You really are burning brightly wherever you go! That is one way COOOOL jewelry box!!! Naturuan mo tuloy akong gumawa ng bulaklak, just the inspiration I need for the SIdol Challenge. I like the jewel-tipping. Is that glitter at the tips of the petals? Oks lang ba?
