Sunday means FSC time and can you believe that we are one year old on Tuesday … another year where time just flew by and left me standing.
Had fun fun fun with this DT piece an altered wooden box, they come in a set of two, this is the smaller.
Painted with red emulsion … oh my what a lovely mess, then added the crackle glaze … very sticky fingers … not the sticky toffee ones so resisted the urge to lick. Waited until dry before adding another layer of emulsion this time white … should have seen the mess on my fingers after this layer of paint, still having fun though.
Sanded all edges and corners to distress even more … by this time even my hair looked distressed, dry, brittle and frazzled.
Stamped over with various designs to add lots of interest plus I added the little paper stamps which are from a Graphic 45 collection. Finished off with Vintage Photo DI … I was on such a high by this time even the dogs were looking good for me to paint. Guess what I did to glaze the top layer … yayyy good ole clear nail varnish … only the good stuff mind none of your cheapo rubbish.
Don’t even know if what I did to alter this box is right but it all worked for me plus it looks good so in my book that’s what counts.
If you think I had fun making this then check out all the DT’s creations they look fantabulous.
Paula’s looks an interesting piece to alter can you imagine the mess I would get in if I attempted to alter her piece. Mmmmm might just give it a go.
