#646 – Mixed Media Box

Hello! No card this time.. its time for some ‘etc.’! πŸ˜‰

Mixed Media Box

I had made this mixed media box some time ago.. high time I posted about it! I used a simple cardboard box which came as a container for some mail as a base, covered it with some thick paper, applied gesso, then used all those media…

I first used Time Holtz Lace stencil with some embossing paste, both on the top and the sides. I then started adding all my little pieces and flowers. The two main pieces (they are starting to look like drawer handles to me now!! :D) are moulded using Prima Markting Moulds Object Labels 1 and Escutcheon 2 and Prima Paper Clay. I painted these using acrylics, then adhered them using 3d Matte Gel. I then added all the flowers and the pearls and stones around it. I also added some Art Stones.

I then used Color Bloom Spray, misting it with water, spreading it using a brush, until I was satisfied with the look. I then applied some Nuvo Mousse and some gold paint, where I wanted a things a bit shinier.

  4. What a fabulous recycling project, your box is stunning. Great colours, beautiful detail and amazing texture. Thank you for playing along with the July HLS Mixed Media challenge xx

  5. I am loving your work because it challenges me to explore a white base in mixed media. I get black, but white is hard for me. Your work requires that I look at it in detail to understand your elements and how you pulled it off. I so enjoyed your post of your work.
