At various blogs I often see boxes that you make yourself out of scrapbook paper because I'm not so precise, I decided that I will cheat a little and altered a box.
I bought myself a face cream and decided that this is the right box for altering, first I painted twice with gesso that I prepared the box for further work.
Then I mixed blue, green and white acrylic paint so that I got a mint color, which I really like. With the brown acrylic paint I stamped circles, add a thin paper for the texture.
Dodala sem različne papirje in slike, ki sem jih spravila. Na sliki levo, lahko vidite kako sem okrasila vse štiri strani. Lepila sem z Mod Podge, ko sem vse nalepila, sem čez vse 4 strani šla še enkrat z Mod Podgom, da sem zaščitila površino. Ko se je lepilo posušilo, sem še natanko premazala z otroškim pudrom, da se nebi lepilo.
I added a variety of papers and pictures that I had. In the picture to the left, you can see how I decorate all four sides. I glued with Mod Podge, when I glued all, I glued all 4 sides again with Mod Podgom so that I protect the surface. When the glue was dried, I added a baby powder, so that the stickiness would go away.
This is how I decorated the main side of the box.
Prvo sem nalepila male srebrne perlice, dodala starinsko slikico gospe s klobučkom, na njo nalepila rafijo, dodala stickpin z metuljčkom in nalepila črne bisere.
First I glued small silver beads, added antique picture a lady with a hat, glued raffia, add stickpin with butterfly and glue black pearls.
