I have this box that I altered for 2Crafty chipboard as a part of my May DT inspiration.
It was a mobile box and I decided to alter it to make my own trinket box. :)
I really loved the outcome and I will encourage you to try this as well.
I love recycling stuff and putting them to better use.
And just to let you know ..if you wondering what that gorgeous blue colour is..its no paint..its LSG spray!
Have a look
Some close ups-
I painted my chippies in shades of gold,plum,blue etc and then outlined them using
white gel pen. I also stamped on them using archival ink.
Lots of art ingredients used here as well...microbeads, gold glitter, fine glitter etc.
The background has been made using stencil,threads,laces etc.
