I don't normally do two posts in one day but I've had several things to upload this week but no access to my photos'. I've come to SW's to abuse his computer. I think I'll leave the other post 'til tomorrow. Finally got into this blogging malarky and I can't get my photos! Ah well, I'll get sorted one day (possibly!)
Anyhow's I've finally found a way of being forgiven for my crafty obsession by making something useful for SW. Now not only does he think I'm thoughtful and clever but he also has a place for his cufflinks. Best still I have more room to buy other lovely things to alter. Clever, clever me!
This was actually a paper mache book, but I've turned it on its side to make a box instead (actually I found a stamp that I wanted to use which wouldn't fit the right way up so a box it became).
The box is painted with a mixture of Claudine Hellmuth's acrylic paint and another brand in a silvery black, which created this gorgeous green/ blue colour. I may start to get organised one day and actually write down the brands and colours I use - bare with me though, it might be a while! An atlas stamp was used for the middle of the box, masked and surrounded by a handwriting stamp. I finished the box with some of Tim Holtz's alteration dies used as a flourish and a handmade heart. There's a bit of glimmer mist on there too - couldn't resist!
