Tin Foil Box

Yayyyyyyyyyyyyy! WE ARE LIVE!!!

Here is my first ever challenge over at ECLECTIC ELLAPU, my very own challenge blog. The first challenge is ANYTHING GOES and it would be great if you could pop on over there and share your creations with us.  Originally the challenges were going to be fortnightly and only have 6 DT's but once seeing the applications I just wante them all so I decided on 2 teams and have them do alternate weeks - hence now weekly challenges lol. My Design Teams are, I believe to be the most talented bunch of girles and I couldn't wish for any more.  Not only are they talented their love for creating shows though their work... kinda jumps out and grabs ya!!! There are not all that many rules for the challenges.  

You can create whatever you like as long as it fits the theme for that week.  There will be one winner, 2 runners up and top fivers (a top five per hundred entries!) Lets hope we get above a hundred entries a week lol. You can enter up to 3 times per challenge.  Random thingy will not be in operation.  My talented ladies will be choosing their winners.  Winners will be posted on the Winners tab the wednesday following the challenge end.  Challenges run from Midday GMT on a Sunday until Midday GMT the following Saturday.

Anyway without further adieu here is my entry to kick it all off.  I altered a box with tin foil. I laid embellishments under the foil to give it a little bit of interest.  I painted over it with black acylic and sprayed with copper mist.  Quite a simple project really just a little messy lol.  I just love altered art and am trying to perfect my techniques.  

Sorry for the overload of pics lol
Please pop on over to ECLECTIC ELLAPU and join in with the fun.  Hope to see you all there.
