Just messing around the other day with a tea box. I wanted to send a small Easter Treat to my sis in law and to make something pretty out of the recycling.
Here is what I started with. The scalloped edge caught my eye!
I first covered the entire box in white gesso so the bright colors would not show through.
Then I used some vintage book pages & shimmer modge podge to cover it. The top was covered with a picture from a book with a pretty girl looking off in the distance.
The rest of the box got covered in music paper! And then the whole thing was spritzed with grasshopper spit!
No, just kidding. It always reminds me of that when it first comes out. I was using Lindy's Stamp Gang Moonshadow mist. Makes it look older! ;-)
See the caramels? Makes me want some....
