Altered Cardboard Box a la Darcy

Published May 31, 2013 by isisimaginings

Hello, happy Friday.  Over on the PaperArtsy blog this week, the amazing Darcy has been astounding everyone with her creativity & on Monday, she showed us the storage container she made for her pots of Treasure Gold.  I don’t have any large cardboard boxes, but I did have an empty Pan Pastels box, so I used that.

I don’t have black gesso, so I mixed the grunge paste with black acrylic paint & applied through a CWS damask stencil.

I used a brush to apply the Spanish Topaz & Ruby TG, with a tiny amount of Brass at the end.  I tried not to cover all of the black card, as I wanted it to show through in places.

The inside was covered with white, hammered textured card, that I covered with all four of my TG colours; Spanish Topaz, Brass, Aquamarine & Ruby, again leaving patches of white.

The final step was the TH ornate plate & journal ticket & a black adhesive pearl in each corner.  I put TG on the plate & added Crackle Accents over the ticket.

That’s all for tonight, I might be back with something else inspired by Darcy tomorrow night.  Until then,

Love & light.

  • That is gorgeous and I could have done that too for this technique, if I’d thought of it as I keep my PP boxes too… so pretty!
