Today over at Creations by Gill M it is time for our second challenge this month. Gill asked her design team to use any items and recycle into something useful.
Below is a couple of photographs of my before project.
I have used an empty box of choclates and some matt emulsion and used some shredded paper for the inisde of the box one it has been decorated. I have glittered the paper using Crafter's Companions Spray and Sparkle Gold.
I have painted the outside of the box first with red matt emulsion then once this was dry painted over it with PVA glue, I dried this and then painted a top coat of cream matt emulsion. I used my heat gun to dry the paint which gives it this lovely crackled effect. Using my daisy stamps from Sheena Douglass' Paint Fusion range I have first stamped the leaves and the flowers then painted them using Pebeo acrylic paints. I have added fronds of greenery and some lavender too. Once this was dry I distressed using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Spun Sugar and then using Crafter's Companion Spray and Shine sprayed the lid. I have added the ribbon from my stash around the sides of the box and fastened a beautiful bow.
On the side of the box I have embossed the edges with pink embossing pen and enchanted gold embossing powder. Added the shredded paper and added some smellies. The inside of the lid I have sprayed with Crafter's Companion Spray and Sparkle Gold.
Thank you for stopping by today.
