La Parfumerie


Hi Everyone, it's the turn of the mixed media design team to host the challenge at That Craft Place which is Anything Goes Mixed Media.

For this challenge I have decorated one of the small shrine boxes available at That Craft Place. Lisa has a few style of these delightful boxes so please check out the links on my sidebar should you wish to purchase one.

The little house approximately measures 2.5 inches across x 4 inches high with a depth of an inch. They come flat packed and are very easy to build.


I decided I wanted to turn mine in to a Parfumerie House. I built up the shrine and added a layer of Gesso and then some Texture paste over a Stencil. I added sections of Chipboard so I could add a roof on to my shrine.


Next I painted my house and stamped some text on to it, which only stamped on to my raised areas. Finishing the outside with some Gilding Wax.


On the inside I added a floor using coffee stirrer sticks.


Next using an old book page I added small pieces of Craft Consortium's decoupage paper, finishing with a layer of Crackle Glaze. I then placed this in my house as the wallpaper for my background.


My roof was cut out of Craft Consortium's Gypsy Gypsy Paper pad using my Cheery Lynn Cuties 3 strip, off-setting each layer to give a tiled effect.


My Perfume bottles were stamped and fussy cut out, adding a layer of Glossy Accents.


3D Perfume bottles are made from small beads from my stash.


My small mannequin button I painted, adding on various beads, lace and metal embellishments to my mannequin and house to finish. I added the little base to my house and sat it on to some old beads as small feet.

Thanks for stopping by today and please pop over to our team blog and see what my fabulous Teamies have made for this challenge.
