Altered Eclectics new challenge *

Hi - For this months Anything Goes/Mixed Media/Altered Art I have decided to alter a simple little trunk box.

I had the really stunning papers in the drawer (along with hundreds of papers that never really see the light of day lol).  It made a change making something relatively clean - no real mess on my table!

I painted the box in a beige colour, cut the papers to fit the box making sure the peacock was placed as the whole.  I did the same with the sides.  I wiped distress ink round the edges. I then run the piping cord over the top and sides.  The final step was to use TH rock candy over the entire box to give it an aged effect.  Now for the pics





Why not head on over to Altered Eclectics and join in with the fun to be had.  Happy Creating to all.

  10. Elaine, I am just so smitten with your altered mini trunk, it is an amazing piece. I love how you carried over the peacock from the bottom to the top etc, I would have never though of that. I have several small trunks I purchased 2nd hand awhile back and going to have try altering them now that I have been inspired by yours.
