~* Tsunami Rose Design Team: Shabby Chic Shadow Box ~ Afternoon Tea ~ Using TRD's Life Abloom *~

Sharing another Design Team Project for Tsunami Rose Designs.
I altered a mini canvas using a couple of the gorgeous images from the "Life Abloom" Printable Journal Kit.
I started off with this little wood box that I got for free along with a little Japanese towel inside from Marukai as my free birthday gift.  It was dark brown so I painted it with a couple coats of gesso.  I then adhered some tissue paper with text print that I got from the Target Dollar Bin to the outside faces of the box.  I distressed it with white acrylic paint.
I adhered the gorgeous papers from the "Life Abloom" printable journal kit to all faces of the inside of the box as well as the front faces of the box.  I fussy-cut the roses and adhered them on the left corner of the box.  I also adhered the paper to the back of the Kaisercraft Wood Flourishes teapot and to the front of the teacup.  All the edges are distressed with gesso or white acrylic paint.  
I added a paper doilie to the back of the box and also an image I cut from the paper.  I added a bunch of Wild Orchid Crafts roses, halfback pearls, trinket pearls, bling, Stampin Up! cabochon, a crochet doilie from my friend  Marisa, and some bits of Prima Alencon and other laces.  I also added a bow that I made from some seam binding.

Here is a my video of my project:
