To make the box I used a regular plain brown box you get at Michaels or any craft store, painted it with Gesso, then plain black paint. When the paint was totally dry I then used Tattered Angels Stiletto Glimmer Glam on the paint, I love Glimmer Glam it has such sparkle to it and it drys shinny. I used Graphic 45's Curtain Call 12 by 12 sheets of paper, cut them using Spellbinders scalloped dies and glued them on the box. I hand made the flower and the stick pin myself and added some black tulle to finish that embellishment off. The finishing touch was Tim Holtz film strip and a metal key from K & Company.
So what do you all think of my first Altered Box? I really thought it came out well. Next up I am going to do a Christmas one.
If you haven't shopped at iamroses yet I think you might be missing out on some of the prettest and well made flowers around. I just picked up this haul for under $30 and that included the shipping costs! What a bargin. The flowers are great to spray with glimmer mist or lindys sprays as well as plain ole watercolors. This is one recomendation I feel excited to pass on. Go to www.iamroses.com and see for yourself. By the way I am not affiliated with them in any way I just love their flowers
I finally finished two art pieces this weekend. This first one was done on chipboard with some scrapbook paper I've had for years. The flowers are Recollection by Michaels, the photo is out of my Etsy shop. I like the way this came out, I've noticed I use a lot of vintage colors in my art so pink was a nice change for me.
