Creative Inspirations - Mini Toilet Roll Album

Creative Inspirations Paint is celebrating their birthday, and there will be a SALE, with 10% off all products for the whole of August.  If you need to re-stock some of your paints, or try them for the first time, now is the time to do so....
This week for Creative Inspirations Paint I have created a mini album from toilet roll holders.  The mini album fits neatly into a soap box which I altered, and can be viewed at the bottom of this post. 
Flower and leaf elements were coloured using Creative Inspirations Paint, in the colours of Olive Green, Antique Gold, Blush, and TuTu Pink. 
The shimmer of the paints is just beautiful, and even more so in 'real'.
The main cover flower, has been painted using TuTu Pink and brushed with Blush, then further highlighted with Resplendence Angel Dust.  My gosh, the glimmer of the paint and Angel Dust is just beautiful...
The box (old soap box originally), hosts 3 hand-made pencils created from kitchen skewers and painted with Creative Inspirations Paint - Green Olive, TuTu Pink and Gold.
 The paints worked so well in creating real pencils - not that they draw!!
