Altered Box for Creative Artiste Mixed Media Design Team

Hi, today I am up on the Creative Artiste Mixed Media blog to share an altered box I have created using the wonderful Maja Design papers from the Vintage Autumn Basics Collection.

Maja Designs are the sponsors for us this month and you can find their website here

This is the box before I started - I purchased a new purse from Vera May - and I love it :)

I began by covering the box in the Maja Design paper on all the edges and adding some lace along the edges where the two designs meet.

I had previously made some embellishments using silcone moulds and No More Gaps - they worked well as they were very flexible.  I have used them for the centre piece and the side doillies.

The centre piece (which is two separate pieces) have been painted with Lumiere Paints in Metallic Rust, Rose Gold and Pearl White.

I have used a Bo Bunny Romance stamp embossing powders on the top of the box.  The birdcages I have used Ranger Embossing Powder in Copper and the rest of the stamping I have used Stampendous Embossing Powder - Pearl White.

Here are some close ups:

The butterflies were cut from the Maja Design paper - 6th May.  I also highlighted them by using dimensional magic.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that I have inspired you to have a go this month.  You will find all the details on the blog here

Til next time - Happy Crafting
