As always it is for Altered Art only, so definately no paper-crafting.
My design team project is this gorgeous glass topped box....an unexpected find in TKMax.
What I like about it is the glass is actually real glass....so I decided to alter it as a trinket box for my dresser.
I gave the box a light sanding before applying 2 coats of gesso.
Once dry I painted it using Docrafts Artiste Acrylic paint in Sage.
I allowed the paint to dry over night and then stamped the images using a lovely postscript stamp and another of the butterflies.
Using frayed burlap ink, I distressed all the edges.
Leaving the whole piece to dry thoroughly before I added the embellishing on the lid...for this I used some glass beaded spray,which I cut down to suit, some lace that I stitched to give it a bit of a ruffle, finally adding the flowers...
