Hi everyone, sorry I am a little late in posting this but Christmas and all the festivities seem to have taken over.
I can't believe we are already at our 6th Challenge over on Crafty-Emblies Challenge Blog, WOW doesn't time fly when you are having fun!!
This months theme was chosen by Angela and she chose Toy Box or Toy or Box. Again the winner will receive a £10 Goodie Box and remember with the very reasonable prices over at Crafty-Emblies this is a good amount of yummy goodness :-).
We have had a little jig around with our blog we are now an altered art/mixed media Challenge Blog - however if you have cards or scrapbooking pages you would like to share with us please visit our sister blog Craftymess - They will be delighted to see your work.
This is my DT project for this Challenge - I made a mini Toy Box from one of the lovely little boxes I brought back from Michaels from my recent holiday to the States. I painted it with Burnt umber and blended in some white acrylic paint to achieve the old look. I embellished it with some G45 Christmas Emporium toy images which I fussy cut from the collection. I used some Crafty Emblies mini alphas on the lid to spell out Toys and used ABC and 123 on the front. Of course I had to use my favourite Inca Gold to the edges of the box just to tone in with the hinges and closure on the box. I used gesso inside and then aged it with some TH Vintage Photo Distress Ink. To finish the whole Toy Box effect I added some Crafty Emblies 'Toys' to fill the 'Box'.
I hope you like what I have made, I am quite happy with how it turned out and love the old aged look I have managed to achieve on a New Michaels box.
Please come over and join in with us at Crafty-Emblies Challenge Blog for your chance to win the £10 Goodie Box. I look forward to seeing your entries.
Thank you so much again for stopping by and I really appreciate all you wonderful comments.
Great Big Huge Hugs
