Roody is back again

The Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is into the wood, this week. If you have a look at all the incredible DT creations, you'll see that there is more than one way to get inspired.
Look, what Roody's presenting (:o) and you know when he pop's up, it can only be another French Country Creation with the Graphic 45 paperline.

I bought this wooden / wire box planted with some daffodils with easter and i gave it a complete new covering.

I painted the edges with DecoArt Traditions black acrylic and used Decou - Page matt to adhere the paper to the box and also used as sealer.
I used a breeze of inka gold to the edges, too

I did a lot fuzzy cutting, again. I've cut 2 sheets of 12" x 12" paper, for the sunflowers

And...by pure chance, i found this nice organza ribbon with sunflowers, which makes a nice decor, too

Inside the box, there's a little Mini Beer Mat Album. This Mini Album is inspired by Zuzu. You'll find more information here.

I did a little modification for the binding, as i used the shaped hinge binding technique by Laura Denison.
You'll find the video here.

I hope you feel inspired, too (:o)
Thanks for your patience reading  up to the end and leaving your very appreciated comments.

Oh my gosh Elly. This completely redone wooden hanger is gorgeous! I love how you have taken advantage of the beautiful images of the French Country G45 papers and created such a beautifully done piece. Simply gorgeous! I also love LOVE the little mini book you've made using the hidden hinges. Each page is so impressive. G45 would be proud of these creations! Thanks for sharing your art with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

Der helle Wahnsinn Elly, das ist so schön und aufwendig Alles gestaltet, da steckt bestimmt ne Menge Arbeitszeit drin. Ein echtes Sahnestück, besonders auch das Büchlein.
