Allsorts - Use pearls

This week at Allsorts it's my turn to host the challenge and I want you to Use pearls. I had a small jewellery box in rather vivid colours so I decided to paint it with white gesso and acrylic paint, distress the edges and put flowers, pearls and a ribbon on it. Suits me more now :)



And this is how it looked before the transformation...


We are sponsored this week by Marianne Design.
 

Other challenges:
I am roses - anything goes (using all roses, rosebuds and pearl string)
