Halloween Mail Box

Hi everyone!! I have neglected my blog for a long time and it is time to get back on track!!
So for my first post I have a Halloween Mail Box.
This was a lot of fun to do.
First I took a chipboard mail box by Darice and painted the body black with acrylic paint.
On the lid edge and back edge I used yellow acrylic paint.
On side 1 pictured here
I used a super cute file from Kadoodle Bug Designs. Here is a link to that file
On the other side is another cute cut but I am not sure who created it.
This is for my daughters family so I added their last name.
On the ends I used Doodle bug designs Halloween paper and a cute ghost cut. I then added the pumpkin ribbon. I used Matte Mod Podge to attach all of the papers and cuts then added a thin coat to the whole project to make it a little more durable. Here is a picture of 1 end both are the same.

Thank-you for stopping by!!!

It's Been Awhile

It has been a very long time since I posted on my blog!!
But I had a chance to make a couple of cards I thought I would share.
1 for my daughter and the other is for youngest grand daughter the artist.

Altered Paper Mache Book Box

Hi everyone! I want to share the altered book box that I just completed!
You can find the kit to do this at Pinque Peacock's Crafty Kit Club
This is the July kit and I purchased the Soft and Shabby

The only thing I added from my own stash was the metal flower and large pearl. You can find both of those items at Miriam's Crafting Supplies    I also used Antique Matte Mod Podge which is not included in the kit.
I started by wadding up the tissue paper in the kit because I wanted the book to have that shabby look. I used mod podge to attach it. When it dried I mixed the 2 colors of paint in my kit to get this pinkish color then just did random brushes of paint to get the look I wanted. On the spine I just used the gold tissue paper and mod podge.          
 The inside I finished the lid the same way then tore sheets of the paper and inked the edges in gold and attached those. I used the gold paper in the kit for the bottom and 2 long sides the cut strips from a pattered paper in the kit for the 2 short sides.
I have to say Jessica at Pinque Peacock did an amazing job putting this kit together!! I even had product left over! I totally loved working with this kit :)
