#676 – Mixed Media Bangle Box

Hello! Couple of months ago, the mixed media bug bit me, and I started craving for some projects I could make. The need for a bangle box came because of this itch! πŸ˜€

I am still a total amateur in mixed media, but i am pretty happy with how this one turned out. I made this bangle box, completely from scratch. Since I wanted the box to be of a specific dimension, and I didn’t have any box of the desired size at hand, I used some cardboard pieces that come from packaging, to create the box.

I used tissue paper for the base – absolutely loved the texture it provides, and how easy it made the colors spread and blend! I also used stencil and acrylic paints for more texture and coloring.

The flowers are both store brought and handmade. I even used my sisters seed beads and scrap polymer clay pieces on this project! That strip of brown lace is something I have with me from such a long time ago – I had wanted to use it in some sewing project, but it has ended up here! πŸ˜€

Since I wanted the project to be as flat as possible, I didn’t use too many pieces that would give dimension. It’s now just perfect to store all my bangles, till the time comes to wear some of them! πŸ™‚

I am joining these challenges with this amateur project of mine –

  1. Wow, that one awesome bangle box, I should give mine to you to alter itπŸ˜‰ I have a transparent box, but I like to see what’s inside, even though I seldom wear any bangles.

    • Ha ha! Hey, we match on so many levels!! Frankly, I would have liked it to be transparent too – but it has been so long and I couldn’t find a box to my liking, so I ended up making it myself.. And I seldom wear those pretty things too.. Even though I love them so much!! πŸ˜†
