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:

Happy Thanksgiving Day – layout for Creative Embellishments

Wow! I cannot believe how fast this year is flying by! Seems like the school year just started for my kids and now it’s already the end of November! For those of you in the US, Happy Thanksgiving! 😀 I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog today with a layout to share using their FABULOUS laser cut chipboard title piece, along with their wood and chipboard feathers. I was also inspired by sketch challenge #19 at Scrap Friends. Here’s what I came up with:
