Finally Caught Up I Think !!

Third Blogg posting of the day it must be a record for me.....Altered Box completed, ready to submit to Tuesday Taggers....before the midnight deadline.

I don't have work in progress photos for this I'm afraid, but it was one of those boxes that expensive but horrible christmas toiletries come in. It was originally a bright emerald green so I painted it over with a couple of coats of white gesso some while back and then left it until my mojo told me it was time to get on with it.

Well my creative juices were shaken and stirred at the weekend, courtesy of Clarky J, Midnight Crafter, Emma etc etc....and the resulting box is inspired by something they were playing with.

I decided to ink over the gesso with brushed corduroy distress ink, which made the box look like a wooden box....that was just waiting to be altered then created the piece of artwork for the lid using corrugated card, distress inks, shimmer spray, a dreamweaver stencil and texture paste, a lovely sentiment about friends, some hand coloured paper and a couple of Idea-ology metal pieces. Job done !!! I hope it passes muster.
