COGS ON MY DRAWERS !!!!!

Hi all!!!!  When I saw  this mini chest of drawers at The Craft Barn I just knew I had to have it to paint up, crafting gets you like that sometimes doesn't it?  Well....actually, me most of the time hahahaha!

Here it is again using the international size guage hahaha...

I have used Eco Piant throughout on this, if you have tried this fabulous acrylic paint then give it a go...its really creamy & comes in fabby colours!  After I had painted inside & out I overstamped with a massive Sir Tim ticket stamp which I lightly gesso'd over.  The came the stamping & embossing of the circles.  These stamps are a set by Stamping Up.  Next came these lovely cogs from Tando Creative, which were painted in Bronze....a gorgeous colour!

The drawers are lined with felt & a fat gold marker painted the edges.  Thats another Christmas pressie out of the way hehe  Thank you so much for taking a look today my lovelies!  HUGS XXX

Hi Karen, thanks for ALL your comments : you are so good and very encouraging. Your drawers look amazing. Love the colours and the cogs but especially love the surprise of gold when you open them. Are these drawers from Kaiser Kraft ? If so ,they are an Ausie company that make some great kits ,papers etc. I would love to walk on the moors, but are should'nt complain ,I do have the beach.xx
