Vintage Camera Box by Heidi

Hi everyone!  Today I'm sharing  a sweet little vintage camera box. I took the first picture of it in sepia which I thought was quite fitting! 
Doesn't it look old, distressed and vintage?  
Now we can give you a different perspective of it in color so you can see the beautiful sparkle and the delicate flowers from CraftSupplies1.
 I began this project by putting it all together, using E6000 as my adhesive of choice.  I really wanted it to be vintage looking and distressed so I spray painted it with white paint.  Part of the distressed and vintage look is due to the way this product "takes" the paint if you do not prime it first.  I then used some clear liquid glue all over it and covered it with glitter flakes.  I mean what doesn't look romantic with glitter flakes? 
 I also wanted the lens to look vintage and cracked so I used about 5 layers of UTEE, put it in the freezer for about 10 minutes and pulled it out and bent it a little to crack it.  Looks old right?  Now in this photo you can get a great look of those beautiful flowers,  starting with the sheer white ones with pearls in the middle. Can you say delicate?   Also from CraftSupplies1 I used the clear beads with wire and in the back of this photo you can see little pearl flowers with rhinestone centers.  These are so sweet and special. 
Here is another photo of the flowers and beads.... look at those sparkly blue beads!  And you can peak at those little pearl flowers with the rhinestones in the center.  So sweet!
