Altered Gift Box – 3Quarter Designs

Hi there everyone, another month means another new collection by 3Quarter Designs and this collection is called Miss Aeronaut.

 

Miss Aeronaunt

For this collection I decided to alter a gift box, the box I used is about 11 inches long x 8.5 inches wide and 3.5 inches high. I started by painting the box with black gesso. Then cut “Amelia Earnheart” patterned paper to size, inked the edges using Ground Espresso Archival Ink and adhered to the lid of the box.

I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang magicals set Totally 80’s to add the pink on the background and also on the chipboard pieces. I used “Pink Rock” mat sheets on the hot air balloon chipboard and adhered the chipboard over the top.

I used left over strips from “Amelia Earnheart” and “Jean Batten” pp to cover the sides of the box, inking the side before adhering.

I used the elements sheets to cut out the clockface, butterfly, vintage key and number panel. I stamped 4 circles and an extra butterfly onto some scrap pieces from ‘Jean Batten pp.

I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst spray “Steampunk Sepia” to splatter on the top and used Darkroom Doors Tick Tock stamp set for the sentiment.

Thanks for dropping in

Be Happy Layout for Dusty Attic

Hello there my creative friends!!! It’s that time again for another DT post for The Dusty Attic and today I get to share a layout I created as a class on a crafting cruise I was on a few months ago.

The papers I used are Dear Diary by Mintay and the flowers are from Prima Marketing Inc. The flowers I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals – Totally 80’s. I stamped the background using a prima text stamp.

I covered the clock, butterfly, script, doily and “sweet memories” with white gesso and then used the Totally 80’s magical to add colour. For the leaves, roman numerals and “Be Happy” chipboard, I left them raw and applied the magical directly onto them. I loved how the sparkle of the magical just intensified doing it this way.

I inked around the edges of the clock face with Black Soot ink and added some splatters using the magicals.
