Here is my take on Something Old + Something New.

I have upcycled an old box using the new Perfect Affair decouapge papers and chipboard. I have distressed the edges of the decoupage paper with a paper knife, just to add a little dimemsion to it.Fussy cut the images from the paper and used foam tape to adhere them to the boket background. Chipboards,mulberry flowers ,fused pearls are few embellishments which are my fav when it comes to giving new look to some old project. Another thing is the gold foil which I added randomly to my red background. Isn't the makeover pretty..

And here is Divya's lovely project..
For today's challenge, I am up-cycling the classic Old Monk bottle into a mixed media project using products from Papericious.

I have used their Decoupage paper - Whimsical and Monochrome Pattern paper, Decoupage Glue, my Fav chalk paints and I got a chance to try out the White crackle paste. 
I painted the bottle with 2 coats of chalk paint, glued torn pieces of paper and added colour splashes. I then went on to add a few shades of dark purple in a few areas, let it dry  and then added the white crackle medium. It resulted in these beautiful cracks you see here!

I had a lot of fun working on this project and I hope you guys enjoy it too!

Hope you would get inspired from our project. Do join us for the new challenge. 
Keep crafting!
