Today I am here with a beautiful project and the step by step tutorial of a beautiful Altered Box I did for PRIKA.
First of all I would like to thank Priyanka for this awesome opportunity and also for the patience that she showed when I wasn’t able to do the project couple of months ago due to family obligation.
Thank you once again.
I am also putting this up for Mixed media Place — August Challenge.
So without further ado let us see the step by step procedure for this project.
Step.1: I took a waste led light box and added a corrugated sheet on the lid and applied gesso all over on the lids sides and the flap. Its a very good quality box with magnets that’s why I didn’t have the heart to throw it. after the application of White Gesso I added some MDF left overs to give a beautiful texture and also coated them with gesso. It will look something like this.
Step.2: Once the gesso was dry I started building up the composition. Till this point I didn’t know which colours I will be using for this project. I usually make vintage and metallic kind of boxes so this time I thought of doing something different. So I thought of using peach , yellows and pinks for my project .
Step.3: Played around with the flowers and wooden embellishments and thought of using lots of die cuts for the shabby chic look.
Step.4: I sprayed lemon zing, hot pink and tangerine colour splashes from little birdie crafts to get the look and the colour that matches the flowers. Diluted it with water and took away the extra colour with the tissue. Added the beautiful flowers from little birdie , leaf die cuts, few mulberry roses, and a lovely quote “ Friends for Life “
Step.5: Added beautiful pearls in big medium n small size. Added lovely organza ribbons to add more shabby chic look. I hope you like the Beautiful Altered Box in Shabby Chic style.
Would love to see your creations from this inspiration.
Love & Hugs <3
