This little Pretty Posies & Kindness reliquary was made with my daughter in mind. The image Sheet #170 has always reminded me of my daughter as a little girl and although it is difficult to chose a favorite, this sheet always tugs at my heartstrings.
I painted the reliquary in a rich brown craft paint. Once dry I brushed on various colors of Stickles giving it depth and a more time-worn look. Paint key gold and glue to back of reliquary. Add bits of book text to inside outer edges with matte gel medium.
Cut out little bits of old wallpaper and highlight with Stickles. I applied them to the back of the box inside using matte gel medium and on the reliquary opening at the top . Glue image into place using a pop dot behind, and add more wallpaper flowers layering with pop dots.
Add word art banner, gem stones, buttons, and spools to reliquary.
This project would be a perfect keepsake for a birthday, anniversary or other milestone.
