Yesterday I went to class run by Scottie Crafts. It was a mini album box. Something quite outside my comfort zone...
I sat next to my friend Sue (aka Scrumplecrunch) I haven't seen her for ages, so I was happy to be sitting with her. And of course, the class was right up her alley. She gave me lots of hints.
Our box started life as a Cricut cartridge box which was gesso-ed for us to use. It got covered with sticky backed canvas and some muslin and textured paste we used with a handmade stencil, cut from cardstock with a Tim Holtz brick die.
We also made a few tags to put in our box, using a variety of background techniques using Distress inks, stains and paints.
so here's a few photos
This first one is the box gesso-ed awaiting the finishing staining/painting
and here it is finished
and a view of the back and sides
And here are the tags.... some ended up double sided, some single sided.
(Entered this tag into the challenge at A Blog Named Hero)
I had an awesome day and finished off the box today with the stains and paints. A big thanks to Wendy for a great class and to Janice who helped her out.
Hope your weekend was a much fun as mine!
