My Creative endevours have moved

MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Recycled box

I discovered an old watch box and decided it would be a good idea to recycle it and turn it into a gift in itself.  I used one of the hearts from the Tando Creative chipboard cogs set to decorate the lid of the box.  Using two coats of acrylic paint and sanding back the top layer with an emery board to reveal the one beneath.

The box was covered and lined with vintage effect paper and I used adhesive ribbon around the edge.

The gifts inside include a handmade booklet with tear off pages....

and four corner bookmarks.

Thanks for looking...see you soon.
