Now this project is one that I saw in a recent edition of Craft Stamper and thought it looked beautiful. I have had this little trinket box form Craft Barn lying about for ages and decided it was going to get the altered treatment first!
So to start I painted a base coat of paint using Claudine Hellmuth Acrylic Paints. I used Sky Blue. Then once that is dry you add a layer of PVA glue and then quickly before it dries, add your top layer of acrylic paint. I used white. As the PVA glue dries it contracts and it brings the top layer with it and creates this lovely old distressed look.
I then stamped with Staz-On ink some flowers and then a grunge paper butterfly and an SU metal frame.
I will definitely be doing this again and maybe with some different colours!
This little box will be winging its way over to my Folksy and Etsy shops later this morning!
Before I go I will leave you with some news from the Quixotic Paperie.
