Been playing around altering a box using DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics and Andy Skinner Stamps this week. I decided on a Travel theme incorporating a compass die I have in my stash as the focal point on the box lid.
I started by base coating the bottom of the box with DecoArt Chalky finish paint in Treasure. Once dry stamped with black Versafine ink using the scratch stamp from Andy Skinners Toxic Stamp set.
For the box top I cut a design on my scan n cut using 300gsm cardstock and glued to the box top with Decoart Decoupage Medium. I then gave the box top a coat of DecoArt Media Texture Sand paste applying with a stencil brush using a stippling motion. Once dry I gave the whole box top a coat of Decoart Media Fluid Acrylic in Titan Buff. Once dry I applied DecoArt Media Antiquing cream all over the whole of the box in Raw umber and wiped back with a baby wipe. Finishing with a coat of DecoArt Media Matte Varnish to seal. I die cut the compass and medallion shapes. Gave both a coat of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in Metallic Gold and when dry applied DecoArt Media Antiquing Creams in Black and Patina respectively and wiped back with a baby wipe. A coat of DecoArt Media Matte Varnish was applied to seal. The elements were then glued to the top of the box lid. To finish an ornate clasp was added for a closure.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read.
