Altered Box for Christmas


I started a healthy diet program.  My food comes in 4x6 boxes.  Since I have a couple of craft shows coming up, I decided to alter one of them and see how it turned out.

I used Lost and Found paper. 
The beautiful lace is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

 I added a 3x3 envelope on the front with a tag in it. Thought someone might want to use this for a gift box.  Could put a little note in there.

 Here's the top of the box.  The image is from NICE CRANE DESIGNS. The tiny red and white rose buds and the skeleton leaves (which you can't see) are from WILD ORCHID FLOWERS.

I totally love how it turned out.  Hope it inspires you to alter something that would have been thrown away.

Stacked Pumpkins Class

Fall is in the air!  The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design!  The did a fabulous job!  They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones.  Dry-brushing technique.  The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

Happy Birthday with Paper Artsy stamps/masking

I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.  I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up.  Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
