Hello Friends ,
Today I am sharing a Box I have Altered using Mixed media ! I have been hoarding this box for long with the idea of making a Memory box for my sons little belongings I have treasured . Finally picked up the materials needed and gave it a makeover!!
I painted the box with Gesso so as to help hold all the materials and media I was going to layer on it. I used 3 different pattern paper scraps to cover up the front of the box , the idea was to give an quilted look as a grandmas patchwork quilt!!
After drying the quilted background I layered it with stencil textures !
After the drying time inked it all around with the distress ink salty ocean .
Inside the top layer I have kept it black and used the place to adhere a first picture of my baby with embellishments and stamped sentiments !
Inside of the box I have covered it up with baby boy echo park 3 different Pattern papers and added in the little booties, caps and wrist band along with the onesie passed on to D by his grandmom which actually belongs to my hubby !
Here's a closer look at the flap I have used ribbons and embellished with a Cat as its my sons favourite . Here again I have stamped a sentiment and used charms
I have used a Snap Card here at the center
The 3 corners are stenciled with this horse from the nursery stencil collection I had bought to use on the walls of my sons room and which never got done by me :)
Embellished the Top of the box with wooden embellishments
I am finally happy making something my son is going to treasure and totally had fun making it!!
