Decorated box by Judith Armstrong

Good morning A2Z fans. Judith here to share with you something a little different from me. I decided to decorate a box using A2Z Scraplet chipboard and stencils.

I started with a plain brown papier mache box. I undercoated it with gesso and then painted it with pink acrylic paint.  I added some hearts to the sides of the box using the A2Z Scraplets Heart in Hearts stencil and some coloured texture paste. I decided the hearts looked a little to bright so dry brushed some more gesso over them and the pink paint. I also added some pink velvet ribbon to the edge of the lid.

The A2Z Scraplets Heart of Hearts Shape just fit perfectly on the heart shaped doily which I adhered to the lid of the box. I stenciled a couple of hearts through the stencil onto hearts on the chipboard. 

Then I set about embellishing the top with lots of flowers, some beads, butterflies and a sentiment.

Thanks for looking

Judith xx

I have wrapped some Kaiser mini flowers throughout the chipboard to make it look interesting.
The chipboard I have coloured with Kaiser Pens.

Like Mother Like Daughter

A very feminine layout for me.... not my usual style.
I have painted the chipboard with Dylusion paints.

"100% Boy" Scrapbook Layout by Louise

Hi Crafters

Here is a new layout "100% Boy"

I've used the

coated with a layer of gesso and then coloured with Tim Holtz Distress Crayons.

I've added some metal cogs to add a little extra interest to this boy page.

The papers on this page are from the "You Rock" collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio and I've added some Nuvo mousse in "Cornflower blue" to the background.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

Good Morning Scraplets

In this layout I have used several different pieces of chipboard.
The Rose Blooms Shape has been covered with gesso sponged on then painted, 
while the pink paint was wet I sprinkled on blush coloured micro beads. The 
Treasure chipboard has been painted with pink paint and covered with Crackle 
Accent. The Circle is from the Circles Nested Set and has been painted white 
and I have wrapped some parts with embossing cotton to match the hand 
stitching around my layout.

Cheers - Tanya x
