Hello, Kirsten here, it's been a while. I was sorry to miss the class last Friday, it looks like everyone had an enjoyable time & created some beautiful boxes. If you missed Lisa's post about the class, you can see it HERE.
We'll be sharing blogging duties over the next week or so to show that we made for the class & I'm starting my posts with two projects; a secret drawer & a wooden plaque.
I altered the outside by first gluing various bits & pieces from my stash to the wood, covering with gesso & painting with layers of acrylic paint (Rangers' paint dabbers in Willow, Aqua & Lemonade).
The bees & dragonflies (Artemio stamps) were stamped onto tissue paper, coloured with Spectrum Noir pens & attached to the box with wet glue.
The image is from the Picture Perfect sheet of Graphic 45's Ladies Diary 12x12 paper collection, I covered it with Crackle Accents & added seed beads. Adhesive pearls & buttons were extra embellishments.
The inside was decorated with more of the G45 Picture Perfect paper - it's double-sided, so there are elements from both sides here. I cut more images & 'hung' them on the back. The dress form is Craftwork Cards.
There are close up photos in this post.
You can read more about this 'clock tower' & see some close up pictures in this post. I made the roof by scribbling Spectrum Noir pens over a piece of metal card & adding blending solution.
I used Graphic 45 papers on this too; the Delicate Details & Timeless Memoir sheets from the Ladies Diary collection, adding a little modelling paste mixed with copper coloured metallic paint to give more texture.
I liked how this turned out with the copper embossing powder on the black card & stamping the hands & outside of the Kanban clock image onto acetate. The bird is from Craftwork Cards.
Thanks for visiting the blog.
