I love to alter boxes when I have a special gift for someone.
This one is approx 6 x 2.5 inches and 2 inches deep.
After giving the box a coat of white acrylic, I used a stencil [Tim Holtz]
to add texture to the top and sides.
While waiting for this to dry I stamped and fussy cut some flowers and leaves. [Sheena stamps , Wild Rose set]]
Now for a bit of colour and an opportunity to get messy. At this stage on embossed surfaces, I usually add directly from the bottle and rub in with paper towels,. I hear you gasp at the waste of paint, but this goes onto a journal page as a mop up.
The colours I used were sage and Vintage Lace.
I used some Pebeo Empire Gold gilding wax on the lid.
The flowers were coloured with Aqua Tint pens.
A little shaping and a light touch of the gold wax and it was ready to assemble.
.Adding gold highlights and making a 3 D project is not an easy item to get a good photo of, but I hope you get the process.
Altering can be as simple or as difficult as you want it to be, I hope you will give it a try and join us at Stamps and Stencils.
