I just finished my Easter shadow box. And because for this I used a toy box of my daughter I would like to enter of the Monday Challenge of the Simon Says Stamp blog: RECYCLE/UPCYCLE STYLE
Here is the box that I used. It was a quite sturdy box so I didn't want to put it into the waste paper bin :-)
Firs I gessoed the box, then I painted white with acrylic paint. When it was dry I started to stenciled. For this I coloured green my white texture paste.
I tapped Rayher-DecoArt brown patina to the edges then I covered with a layer of Ranger Distress Crackle Paint (Clear Rock Candy).
The inside was gessoed too and painted light blue.
I cut out the shapes from chipboard. Actually I used many layers to give dimension to my elements.
The eggs were painted with acrylic paints, after I put tiny white dots on the surface. In the end I covered with Ranger Glossy Accents.
I put four little flowers in the grass. I inked the edges of the petals with Victorian Velvet and I put tiny half pearls to the middle of the flowers.
What I used:
Sizzix Framelits Die, Eggs (658691)
I hope you like it! Happy crafting!
