book boxes with the nice rounded spine. I covered the front and back of the book with Vintage Decor Bird paper and an old book page on the spine. I then gave it all a few coats of white wash (watered down Titanium white acrylic paint). I gave a couple of the gorgeous new "Calico Craft Parts" flourishes a nice rusty paint effect. to achieve the effect, I added a little texture using DecoArt texture paste. when it had dried i painted it using DecoArt Traditions in; transparent red iron oxide, quinacridone gold and some stipples of raw umber.
I gave them a little bit of a white wash too.
eggs to go in. I used more book pages and white wash paint as well as some moss and some eggs were added.
