Little Boxes.

The first of the month sees a new challenge over at Altered always altered art & mixed media only, definitely no papercrafts.
My design team project this month was to sort through my craft stash and make use of some items that I've had what seems like forever,lol...
So I chose two boxes to alter, both completely different....

The Blue box turned out really well, it's the papaermache type box and the paint adhered to it really well. I loved the fact that I could add something in the window,which I protected using a square piece of acetate. I added a few flowers ( I dotted some Rock Candy on the flowers to add more interest ) and wire coils and finished it off with an Inkylicious stamped sentiment.

The little Pink Box...well things didn't quite go to plan with that took a fair amount of prepping and painting as the edges were pretty rough and the grain of the wood caused slight ridges on the lid, despite all the sanding down.
I used Rose Pink for this box and then lined it with a rose patterned paper. The stamp I used for the sides and lid is from the same single stamp by KaiserKraft,  I just used different sections of it for the sides.
To finish I rooted through my trillions of buttons until I found a nice fancy one.
So if you fancy a challenge why not pop over to the challenge here at
