Altered Eclectics: Oval MDF Box

Hello!

As it is the first day of a new month it must be time for a new challenge over at Altered Eclectics!!
Click HERE to go on over and see all the design team projects and hopefully get inspired to enter a project of your own.  This challenge is for all altered and mixed media art, but no cards or ATC's.

My project this month is an altered MDF box...



I started by painting the box with Americana Décor Primitive paint then once dry added some of the crackle medium to areas.  Once this was thoroughly dry I painted over the box with the Refreshing Americana Décor paint.  Then added some Pebeo Antique Gold gilding wax...


A script stamp from Bo Bunny was used with archival sepia ink to add some extra interest to the box.
I have previously created embellishments using resin and paper clay in a range of moulds (Iron Orchid Designs, Martha Stewart and Stampin'Up!), so I picked out a selection and painted them with the same Refreshing paint and added more of the gilding wax...


Some more embellishments were also then chosen to add to the top of the box.  Paper flowers, metal embellishments and some cardboard elements as well as a gem...


For mw the final touch has to be a sentiment, so I chose a tag and sentiment stickers from the 7 Dots Studio 'Lost and Found' collection and toned them into the box by adding Vintage Photo distress crayon to the edges...


A touch of gilding wax was added to the other elements to bring the whole piece together.

Thank you for reading and looking.  I will be back tomorrow with some of my design team samples for the latest Signature Collection release from Crafter's Companion, it is very glamorous!!

They are being shown tonight (1st May) on HOCHANDA at 8pm, then again tomorrow at 9am, 12pm, 4pm and 7pm.

If you are in the UK have a lovely bank holiday, and for everyone else have a great day whatever you are doing!
