How is you day going?
I hope you are well. Thank you for stopping by!
This week's Twisted Tuesday Challenge asks the question....Are You Blue?
Find the challenge here:
The Twist is we want you to try and use only 1 other color besides blue in your creation.
I think this trinket box I made for a special friend goes along.....my other color is brown/tan....
This started out as a plain wooden box from Hobby Lobby.
I got out the Modge Podge and went to work "pasting" on different papers.
I love the glossy coat the Modge Podge added.
Then, of course, I had to add some bling.....well, a lot of bling and pearls!....oh, oh, oh, and flowers!
Here's a close up of the flowers. I painted every so lightly the leaves to go along with the other colors of the box. The bright green just stood out too much. The flower/medallion in the background with the pearl middle is a piece cut from patterned paper.
So, for my first altered box.....I think I did alright and I am HOOKED! I gotta get another and make it for myself! :)
(the inside and bottom I painted dark brown and added some goodies for Lisa inside. :)
Until next time...
