Little Boxes

Hi everyone,


Well we actually had a drop of rain on Saturday night! I didn't do very much but some is better than none I suppose.


Here are 2 Paper Mache boxes I bought from The Craft Barn at Lingfield. They measure 17 x 6 x 4cm and 14.5 x 4.5 x 4cm, so both nice sizes. They are in the 'Altered' section. I painted them with an ivory coloured emulsion paint. It took 2 coats and then using Dry Foam, I swiped Walnut Stain Distress Ink around the edges and lightly on the flat areas.

The rose was a Woodware Punch also from The Craft Barn. I used a lightly textured paper from my stash (can't remember where it came from!). I edged each piece with Walnut stain before construction.

The fern leaf is a Die from Little Claire. I use this quite a lot as it can be cut down to any size. I also edged the leaves with the Walnut Stain ink.
I was tempted but managed to refrain myself, from putting Stickles on the flower!Lol!!


Little Claire have just announced a competition which ends on Thursday 26th May. It is on their Blog http://littleclairesdesigns.blogspot.com from some pictures of cards that they have put on their blog, you have to choose 2 favourites and leave a comment as to why you have chosen these two. On Thursday, they will then do a random draw and you could win both stamps or stamp sets that your favs are made with. Full details on the blog.


I would like to thank you very much for your kind comments on my fusion painting. I still have it at the moment!


Thanks for stopping by,


Luv,

Carol S.xx
