Altered Memory Box

Hi everyone! I’m up today on the Creative Embellishments Blog sharing an altered paper mache box. This is actually the second time I’ve altered one of these. The previous one also featured lots of CE goodies, but it was smaller than this version. For this piece, I started out by spraying it down with a Krylon spray called Make it Stone. Once that dried overnight I splattered it first with a lot of different shimmering sprays by Lindy’s Stamp Gang and acrylic paint. I altered all the CE chippies with Liquitex acrylic paint and Jacquard Lumiere paints. Here’s what I came up with:
