Take a box ...

This month at the Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge we are sponsored by Scrapp Matts & Papertole Australia

who offer a fabulous variety of mixed goodies for crafters and artists alike, to enjoy.
For my DT piece I took a balsa wood box from The Works and decided to transform it into a vintage style box. The frame surrounding the plaque is from Scrapmatts and I painted it with gold Decoart, which is really highly pigmented paint and really gives a metallic look to the fab frame from scrapmatts.
. I am going to be sharing the techniques that I used at a workshop at Beautiful Things Brentwood, Essex and am really looking forward to it. 
I love how you can make very basic items look completely aged!
Happy creating!
