Magical Cubby- Fiona Randall

 Morning all Fiona here with my project for this weeks theme on the blog

' Anything Goes'

I have used a Tando Large Cubbey for my project with a magical theme.

Side View.

I assembled the cubbey and gave it a coat inside and out with DecoArt Chalky finish in carbon. Once dry I gave it a coat of  DecoArt Ultra Matte varnish. I then covered all four sides with some text themed scrapbook paper in a dark Navy shade.
I then stamped with a Stazon ink pad the mushroom and the Fairy Images onto the acrylic insert that comes with the Cubbey then set this aside to dry.
I then took a piece of white card stock and Inked and blended with distress oxide inks in two dark shades of blue using a mask for the moon. I then added whit pan pastel and blended with my finger around the moon to give a glowing hazy look. Stars were then added with a white posca paint pen.
 This was then glued to a piece of Tando Grey Board cut to size to fit the back of the cubbey. 
A small hole was the punched into the bottom left corner of the back piece and tiny lights threaded through.
The now dry acrylic insert was glued into place.
 The tiny lights were then affixed to the inside of the cubbey and then the back piece glued in place and the light battery pack glued to the back piece.
All edges were then swiped with DecoArt Metallic Lustre in silver.
Next up the pediment stand and top piece were given a coat of DecoArt Chalky finish in Carbon and then swiped with the silver Metallic Lustre.
These were then glued to to the top and bottom of the Cubbey respectively. To finish more stars were added to the inside frame of the cubbey with a white posca pen.
Quite pleased how this turned out and my daughter has claimed it already LOL.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read
Hugs Fiona.
