Today I have a photo of another mixed media item that I created recently. I started it last Thursday when I was showing the technique to my 3 rubber stamping ladies at the craft shop.
Here is the square;
The colours are much better "in the flesh".
I didn't want to make another card - so I had a think about it, then remembered a selection of papier mache boxes I have stashed away. Took a look at the collection & found I had a square one just the right size. So I decided it would go on the lid.
Before gluing it down I painted the inside of the lid & the box & then the base of the box with black acrylic paint. On the sides of the lid I used Inka Gold wax. I cut a strip of black card to go around the box & then stamped a flourish on each side. To stamp the image I used the Inka gold wax - when it is dry & polished it looks great.
Here is the box from one of the sides
Now I have to decide what I am going to do with it. At the moment it is sitting on my craft desk.
During my "me time" this week I have also made another smaller version of the fold over box we will be dog at club night soon. Today I hope to make some notelets to go inside - will put a photo when it is all finished.
If you have been crafting recently - why not send me some photos to show to everyone?
'Bye for now.
