Mixed Media Floral Spring Box for ScrapBerry's



Welcome back to my creative space! Today I'm sharing a mixed media spring floral box featuring ScrapBerry's gorgeous In Bloom Collection paired with lovely blossoms, resin and polymer pieces.

FTC Disclosure: I am currently working as a freelance designer for ScrapBerry's. While I am compensated in product, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of these products and will not recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.

Tips and Techniques
A mix of gorgeous ScrapBerry's Cherry Blossoms and Stemmed Lily's with a few flowers and leaves from my stash for a floral spring bouquet to decorate the top of the box. The paper mache box is covered with In Bloom Abundance paper.

The lovely ScrapBerry's French Journey polymer clock and Fairy Tale resin daisies are tucked into the cluster.

I embossed craft metal adhered to a piece of chipboard with a floral design to coordinate with the paper. It was brushed with white gesso, allowed to dry, then randomly rubbed with crackle paint across the surface. I let this sit over night to allow the crackle to dry naturally, then spritzed with two colors of mist.  I also added texture around the cluster with Prills.

**Tip**
If you will be applying gesso or acrylic paint to craft metal, be sure to lightly sand the
surface before embossing to help the gesso stick to the surface.
