Once again it is time for the new challenge over at Paper Ala Mode, The Outlawz. The challenge this week is Movement ie flight, walking, transport - anything along those lines and is being hosted by the talented Madeleen. i am pretty biased as she is on my DT too ;-))
I decided to alter another box - am a fanatic with boxes lol. At least lots of prezzies are being borne of my fanaticism lol.
I painted the box with gesso and then used alcohol inks for the base. I stamped a map background on tissue paper and layered it onto the box deliberatelyy wrinkling it to give it texture. Unfortunately the map disappeared against the background lol. Oh well lesson learnt from that!
Once dried I spritzed it with red and gold sprays to give it a bit of umphhhh! I then wiped a little rub and buff over some of the creases. I applied white crackle paint using palette knife and spread it over the top of the box. It gave more texture near to the ceases and you can see a little crackle in parts.
I painted the penny farthing and wings I had bought from Crafty-Emblies using Viva decor metallic paints. I then triple embossed them using clear UTEE.Ouch Ouch Ouch.. my poorly finger tips lol.They look quite effective I think.
I adhered them to the box using glossy accents. The upper wing is on the lid so when closed it is in the desired place.
I painted the inside of the box using blue, pink and black to give it a mottled effect and was then varnished.
Well I think that is about it. I can hear all the sighs of relief lol.
Why not pop on over to the OUTLAWZ and join in with this really fun challenge.
Hope to see you there
