Box of Love

Hi sweeties!

Love is in the air over on the Prima blog and today's project I have for you is an altered wooden icons box which I made into a 3D card. Great way to use up your empty Prima packaging!

I wanted to create a natural, romantic look for my project using an empty wooden Prima embellishment box and some of my favourite natural tree bark.

The box was painted with white Heavy Gesso and decorated with pieces from Tales of You and Me ephemera pack on the inside of the box then added White Sand texture paste on the edges of the box for texture..

 I watercoloured a paper clay heart with The Classics pan set and added Blush pink micro beads with 3D Gel for texture, which I surrounded with Tales of You and Me flowers then gave everything a soft pink sheen with Cotton Candy Color Bloom.

 I hope this has inspired you to get creating with your empty embellies boxes!
