Book Box.

Post by Lorraine on Sat 20 Feb 2010 - 19:53

My project for today. Mr Green

Kim gave me a set of 3 of these cardboard boxes and this is the middle size. Basic Grey 'Blush' papers.
Colours on the inside aren't quite right on the pic, it's a much better match really.

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing

What did you use to 'paint' the actual box? It's a very nice
finish.

I painted the whole box with gesso first.
Then used Anita's 'Wine' acrylic paint.
The inside was painted with Decoart 'Dusty Rose' acrylic paint. That paint is actually an exact match for the inside papers, but looks darker on the photo.
Aged Mahogany distress ink for used for inking the paper edges.
I cut some embellies from another sheet of paper and they're actually 3D'd on foam dots on the cover, but that doesn't show on the pic either.

In my small box, I've got some ready to colour stamped images and all my promarkers are in the large box. Mr Green

I think I got mine at Hobbycraft. Also good to decorate and put things in for safety
and keep on your bookshelf amongst the other books.

I've seen the safe books that you can hide on the bookshelf,though most of them look like 'older' books and my others don't Mr Green I've also seen the baked bean tins that are safes...saw some of them in town on Friday.
