Alter a Box



Morning Crafters


Heres my Altered box for Craftymess - Alter it group - It was my turn to choose something to alter so I came up with boxes !!!







It started its life as a Turkish Delight box, so I gessoed it first, then painted it, then clear embossed it.  Added the fairy and glued on on sparkly, metaly thingys lol (dont know what they are called, had them a while and they sit in a box, with no label) sorry folks !!! 

I used sepia on her and added some gems dotted around.  The flowers were punched out and then sprayed with Cosmic shimmers, then added some big beads and some copper metal leafs.  Inside are some chocies for my mummie, as she never got her mothers day pressie from me, it went walkies with the very kind royal mail !!!  I think she will like it.

Feel free to hop on over and join in the fun, we have loads and loads of challenges, swaps and heated discussions going on there with the live chat.

Happy Easter Folks

Hugs
