Secrets revealled

If you pop over to Nathalie's blog http://nathaliethompson.blogspot.com/ you'll see she's revealled all about the creation of my special box, it makes fascinating reading the many different elements and techniques she used. The box has a very special finish and feel to it that unfortunately I can't capture on the photo's but now I know how she did it!
It's incredibly cool to think there's a 1930's newspaper underneath, Nathalie sent me a page and I'm still clutching it, so precious!

I'll also be trying out her technique with the lace, I love the translucent effect she's created with Modge Podge, it softens the look of box but at the same time sets as hard as a rock.

The most inspiring of ideas!
