Hellooo Sweeettt Craftersssss!! :)
It is nearly the end of August and I wanted to make something different.
I made this mixed media box !
I came across this Iphone box that I kept with me since ages! Thought could put into some use?
I started off by painting the entire box using Gesso from Sakura. And let it dry.
I used two stencils from ARTplorations:
1. Bold Florals - for the cover
2.Leaf print - for the bottom
I used a gold marker to trace these stencils over the box. Giving it a metallic start. I also colored the flowers on the front using black acrylic.
For the box, I struggled at positioning the flowers and finally kept in the way shown. :)
Later, I layered it with gesso and gave shades with white and black acrylic. I again layered with white acrylic and when half wet I brushed Bronze Dust all over. I didn't want too many embellishments. So , kept the bottom as it is. :)
Did you like this box? We can actually use it for keeping jewellery items and accessories. Or of course, craft embellishment! ;)
