Altered Box

Good morning everyone, I hope you are having a lovely weekend. It's the first of the month and time for a new challenge at Altered Eclectics, as always the theme is Anything Goes as long as it's Altered Art/Mixed Media, no cards please.

For my DT piece I've decorated a round box.

I'm entering my box into the Try It On Tuesday challenge - Vintage Photo.

This is the box I used.

I painted it with white gesso and added some lace round the side. I also added lace to the side of the lid.

I coloured the box with gelatos and added some tissue wrap and cut out butterflies.

I stencilled some modelling paste to the lid and dry brushed it with white paint, I also dry brushed some pink flowers.

The next thing I did was to spray everything with Glimmer Mist.

This is a close up to show the glimmer.

I glued the flowers, twisted wire, a photo booth image of a couple, a piece of frayed material, charm and some micro baeds to the top. I also added flowers, micro beads and wire to the sides.

A close up of the flowers.

The finished box.

Please take a trip to Altered Eclectics to see the lovely inspirational pieces that my talented teamies have made.

Thank you for visiting.
xxx Hazel.
