Hi everyone!! This is a desk organizer I created for my craft studio. I ADORE the Antiquities Collection by Donna Salazar Designs, so most of the pieces I have created for my studio have been made with this collection.
The dividers of the desk organizer and the drawers were covered with gorgeous papers from this collection. I added vintage lace to further decorate my organizer. After adhering the papers to my project, I dry-brushed white acrylic paint onto the surface and misted it with a variety of inks. Then I inked all of the edges with Truffle Mix'd Media Inx.
I created the large, hand-made flower using the Rose Creations dies by Spellbinders. You can find a tutorial for this flower HERE. The leaves (Leafy Stem #3 DA0580) are manufactured by The Dusty Attic. This chipboard element was dry embossed to add texture to the leaves.
This Wrought Iron Trim Set (DA0547) was painted and inked to give it an aged look. I adhered the chipboard element with a spray adhesive to avoid glue from seeping out from under.
Each of the smaller drawers is decorated with an inspirational word (Mini Words #3 DA0477) and my favorite embellie... eyelets! I love the look of metal embellishments on any project.
The sides of the desk organizer were decorated in a slightly different manner. I covered the surface of the sides with printed tissue paper, making sure to leave creases and wrinkles in the paper. Then I added a coat of gesso for added texture and a layer of Glass Bead Gel. The entire surface was then misted and the edges inked.
Here is a view of one of the sides of the desk organizer.
This gorgeous corrugated flower was made by my sweet friend, Chrissy. Thanks girl!
This is a closer view of the Glass Beads Gel. I love the beautiful texture this adds to my project!
The back of the organizer was altered in a similar manner. Only instead of adding Glass Beads Gel, I used Ceramic Stucco to give the surface more texture.
