Spread Your Wings

 Hello! Welcome to my Studio!
I'm Beverly Cole

This upcycled box is for Gecko Galz , "In Dreams" Challenge, December 2019. I have the privilege of being on the 2020 design team!
I have used a Birchbox box and five corks to create it. I created a collage of images and sentiments from GeckoGalz, and some of the papers from TheArtsystamperShop. You can find both shops on Etsy.
You can see the papers inside the box. They are from the Marble Magic paper pack.
I cut the bottoms off the corks, using four for the legs and one for the knob.

The embellishment on the box is made with two butterflies from the Butterfly Dreams Mini Paper Pack. I coated them with Glossy Accents and let them dry. Then I froze them to crack them. They are sitting on a piece of tea dyed cheesecloth.

The other Gecko Galz digitals I used were:

Dream Land Digital Collage
Charming Words collage set
Dreams of Spring collage set

Be sure to join the fun by joining the challenges Gecko Galz offers in the Facebook Group Each one offers a different collage sheet as a prize.
Here they are!
There is also a challenge on the blog! This month's challenge is "In Dreams"
