Happy Saturday eve, my friends! I’ve popped in this evening to share something I’m absolutely tickled about! I joined the Reneabouquets ‘Artists With An Edge’ Facebook group several weeks ago and have been ‘oohing and ahhing’ over all the beautiful projects being shared in the group! So I decided to join in and created a shaker box to enter in their August 2020 Moodboard Challenge! How gorgeous is this moodboard?! Green is my favorite color and I see some purple in the mix, so I went with a green and purple color combo!

I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun this was! I love shaker cards so I went one step further to make a stand-alone shaker box using Reneabouquets DIY chipboard kit, which is just the box. The possibilities for shaker filler are literally endless… mine consists of Reneabouquets beads, chunky glitter, microbeads, glitter glass and a chipboard gear.

I embellished the outside of the box with paper flowers and leaves, green bling, a green bow and a purple dragonfly. The small green flower, the small white flower and the large green flowers are from my stash. I inked the two large flowers (which started out white) with Tattered Angels Moss Glimmer Mist. I fashioned a triple loop bow from green seam binding in my stash.

Here are a couple close-ups:

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
