The Lovers Carnival Canvas

The Carnival Lovers Canvas
Today I'm sharing with you a canvas that I've created using the Lovers from Rogue Redhead Designs Carnival Dreams.
I have to admit I've gone all out Pink for this Canvas :-)
And I love it! I've given it to a friend as a little thank you for all her wonderful insights :-)

I hope your day and week is as Pink as mine :-)

Use some Wood at Craft Room Challenge

We have such a cool theme this time from Zoe- Use some wood, this is partly in honor of a new sponsor:

 The MDF Man no banner but go and take a look at all the goodies he has ready and waiting for altering.   He has given us a selection of his Cogs as a prize for one lucky person drawn at random.

This is what Zoe says about her Use some Wood theme : "When I saw the stand at a local craft show I had to get a selection of goodies to try, wood is a great medium to work with and this time we would like you to include something made of wood in your entry.   Real wood not an image be it twigs from the garden, some bark, or a wooden embellishment from the craft shop."

I've had this plain wooden box for over a year- hubby gave it to me for some of my bits and bobs, I've also had the Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante papers for an age but couldn't bear to use them on pages cause I loved them whole ;-)
So then I realised perfect for the box.

Altered Wooden Box
I covered the box with paper, and then I've added embellishments Finn style.

The top of the Box

Just love how it's turned out so rich and slightly Edwardian Steampunk :-)

I'm going to enter this over at Unruly PaperArts where they're having a Wooden September.
