Here is my second project for our April challenge: Rust. Again I have made a box but this time I chose a square paper box. Actually, the square shape gave me the idea to make a door from the top.
I chose the number 16 because this box was made for my daughter who was born on the 16th and because since her birthday we had a lot of coincidences with this number, e.g. we live at number 16 :-)
Well, it was a paper box and I glued two layers of blank paper napkin with making a lot of wrinkles, like here.
I painted blue the top with DecoArt Bahama Blue and brown the bottom with Burnt Umber.
I cut out the Hardware Findings from chipboard and painted brown too.
Then I covered all the brown pieces with rust paste, like here.
