I decided to try something new for me as their GD today...to alter a box. I had kept this mint box from Christmas as I thought it might be useful.
I needed a box to put my new Inktense pencils into. My Hb bought me a set for Christmas. They came just in a simple plastic wallet as they are a set put together by LOTV.
My empty box of Bendicks mints was the perfect size. I did a bit of research on the internet and through trial and error my plan and box came to life.
I started by painting the box with a coat of gesso and then added strips of book pages to start to get some texture.
and here is my finished box.
I added just a few pops of green here and there.
I would like to enter my altered box into the following challenges;
Simon Say stamp work it Wednesday
Artist Trading Post alphabet soup
Simon Says Stamp Monday no rules
Country View Crafts drips and drops
Simon Says stamp Wednesdays anything goes
As you like it favourite project that's not a card and why? This is my favourite as not only do I like the end project but it feels fabulous, so much texture and it is providing a useful home for my pencils.
Thanks Sandie over at Rhedd's for inviting me to Guest for you today, it's been pleasure and I have tried something new for me and got a useful pencil box from the result.
Thanks for all your birthday wishes you left for my son's birthday on Tuesday, We had a fab evening and he loved his lemon birthday cake.
