This month for Altered Eclectics I altered a small MDF matchbox, these are readily available in different sizes from Fernli Designs,
After gluing the matcbox together and leaving it to dry over night, I gave it a coat of gesso. The inside of the drawer I paint in pale blue.
Using card that I coloured with distress inks, I stamped it with a nautical image...then I cut it to fit all sides of the box and the front and back of the drawers.
I sprayed the match box with a gloss sealer, added the knob to the drawer.
Then I added the seahorse, some drift wood, mesh and shells and quote and again sprayed the box again with the gloss sealer.
The sealer also brightened up the glass and shells and pebbles that went in to the drawer...I was really pleased with the effect...
