Colorful Creations "Spring Fling" Blog Hop!!!!

Welcome to the Colorful Creations Spring Fling Crop! I don’t know about you but the ladies here at CC are ready for some sunshine... how about you????

To help us get ready to usher Spring in, we decided to have a "Spring" themed Blog Hop... so all the projects you find along the hop will be themed around Spring!!!  Make sure you visit each DT member’s blog!

You should have come from Toccara‘s blog, if not, please go back to the Colorful Creations blog to start the hop from the beginning.

Since this is a "Spring" Blog Hop, I decided to do a little "Spring Cleaning" and make a little organization piece with "Spring" colors:

Here is a set of altered drawers:

Aren't they adorable?!?  I truly love the finished product here!!!

I started with a plain white storage piece from Michaels, and painted it with a Tim Holtz Dauber and Luminarte Silks Acrylic Glaze (Both from my March Kit at Frosted Designs!) for some shimmer!

I used mod podge to adhere the papers from the March kit at Frosted Designs to the inside and outside of the box and drawers!


I used trim from the kit and dyed it using the Pink Tim Holtz Distress Dauber.  I attached it down the center of each drawer and then added a brad directly in the center as my drawer pull.  

I took the Fabscraps chipboard from the kit and clear embossed it with the tiny Prima Stamp clock and Versamark ink.  Then I added Lindy's Stamp Gang Mist over it for the desired color!

Once I finished and everything was dry, I added all my favorite "small mediums" to the recess in the top for easy access!!! 

Here are some other "Spring Cleaning" projects I made with foam board from a previous post here!!!   

So, for my hop challenge, I would like you to create ANY TYPE of ALTERED OR OFF THE PAGE PROJECT using the following color combo:
