The new challenge theme over at Try it on Tuesdays is....
Anything but Square.
This time I decided to alter my pencil pot,
The team have had some fantastic ideas for this theme, I hope you will pop over and take a look.
On the left are a few photos
I took during the process.
the original box, very pink and covered with scraps of torn paper.
a few layers of white acrylic paint, I quite liked the uneven surface at this stage , so just added some extra texture using stencils.
show one side and the back, more stencils, a few stamped images,
colouring with pens, some blue distress ink and gilding wax.
show the other side and the front.
Here I added a cut out heart shape made from corrugated paper and a wooden bird shape.
My pencils now sit on my desk in a shabby chic style box,
which I enjoyed altering.
Thank you for calling in to see me today,
I always appreciate the comments you leave for me.
