|Secret Garden Altered 8 x 8 Match Book Box - Graphic 45|
Happy Saturday everyone
Not the sunniest of days for May here in the UK but its not raining... yet!!! Anyway as it's been a while since I shared a Graphic 45 project with you all I thought I'd take some pics of one of my demo pieces I made for the Create and Craft shows last weekend. I went lilac using papers from the Secret Garden collection that matched perfectly with PaperArtsy's Pansy Fresco Finish chalk paint.
First I altered the box by cutting along one of the lower edges of the outer cover, and then sticking the inner box down to the base. I angled the two right hand edges and added a magnet (hidden under the papers) to keep the box closed. then I painted it all over with Pansy paint and when dry used one of Ali Reeves Brick Wall masks and Brushed Corduroy distress ink to highlight the uncovered sides and inside cover of the box.
The inside was covered with one piece of cream 12 x12 paper and the front decoration includes one of the new pockets and tags, hinges, stamped buttons, brads, staples ribbon, chipboard pieces, cut a parts and violet sprays cut out from the 12 x 12 paper.
Here are a few close up shots.
Have a great weekend :-) C
