Twinchie & Box

A big welcome to my new followers, I have another three in this past week and I do hope you enjoy my crafting journey, I am so amazed I have so many followers and really all the comments make me continue and I really do love sharing my art with you all, thank you for all your encouragement. Thank you very much for all your wonderful comments, yesterday  was amazing, so sweet of you. I got to about 80 of  the WOYWWers yesterday and couldn't do any more! so popular now our Julia and her fabby WOYWW. I will show you my desk and another draw next week! sorry I didn't this week but I thought the post was long enough and I didn't want to make it any longer for you all ;0) I know how long it take to visit so many blogs! so thanx again for sticking to the end lol. Any way thank fully I made this Tuesday! or today would be empty! never end up crafting on a Wednesday any more lol.


I have made a twinchie! I really liked making this twinchie I have made it for a challenge with SCD as May is their B'day month and every week we have to make a twinchie the theme is 'crowns' this week and I think you will see the lion is king here! he he.



It's really quite 3D. I have used Chip board as a base and covered it in dictionary paper aged it  with some DIs, then, added a photo! I use two for a 3D effect I stamped a crown on a paint chip, than added some stickles and glossy ascents to make the crown even more special! I hope you like the effect.

Now On to my box, Do you like it? This was a plain box and I primed it with two coats of primer (gesso)I then painted it in copper cracking paint (see item list) then I left over night to crackle and I love the results you get. I put some design paper (DP)  inside the box (not shown) then I stamped with some black permanent ink heat-set it and then I added a twinchie! I hope you like this I thought I would show it as one post, hope you don't mind. Love Dawn xx

Items Used:- Paint, Viva Croco copper and Daler-Rowney gesso. Stamps, Crafty Individuals. (CI) Inks, Distress Tim Holtz and Stazon. Twinchie card stock CI. Photo, CI. Clossy acents, and stickles glitter glue Ranger.  Paint Chip freebie at B&Q dictionary paper stash.

Am I right in thinking a twinchie is a 2" square? I really love your design on this one and your box is just gorgeous.

You are on a ROLL. Love the twinchie and I'm glad you have a use for it. I've never found a use for them. This one is really dimensional. Gotta love it and the copper box, too.
