Boxing Clever

Boxing Clever

Hi There!

Are you beginning to think of
getting away for a long weekend
or maybe even holidaying in the
UK this year?  

Louise Thomson has been
thinking the same and has sent
us a project reminiscent of 
summer holidays .............

"I painted a wooden box, first with 
a couple of coats of gesso, then with
 some fresco finish paints. 

The edges are stamped with a
 Carabelle stamp. 

I painted in all the details, rather
 liking the idea that it could be 
a little Cornish fishing village with
 multi coloured cottages. 

Some subtle detail was added to
 the top by sponging paint on to an 
Impression Obsession cover a card stamp
 and printing it over the lid (I'm afraid it 
doesn't show well in the photo).

 A little distress oxide ink was blended 
around the edges and I finished of
 with a couple of io die cut gulls."

Thank you Louise, a timely 
reminder of summer holidays
and trips to Cornwall.

Impression Stamps Cover-a-Card stamps
can be found here
and IO dies here
Carabelle Expressions stamps are here 

I can almost taste that Cornish clotted
cream .......... dreaming on.....

'Till tomorrow
