Display Boxes

On Sunday coming,
 yes, I know Fathers Day.
My friend and I are participating in a local table top sale to raise funds to pay for room hire of the local village  hall (Mega Bucks).

We are hoping to run a workshop to make a canvas, with a bit of stamping, painting, metal work, colouring and no end of other odds and ends.

Initially we were setting the club up for  people in the local area as currently there is nothing like it available, but if anyone would like to try us out get in touch.
(Local area being Codsall, Nr Wolverhampton).

Anyhow back to the project at hand,  I own a set of Laura Ashley storage boxes which were residing in the loft, because of the above event we had to find a way of displaying our  goods.

So, up the loft I went and down came the boxes all ready for a coat of paint and new lease of life.

As you can see, I forgot the before photo and the only bit I hadn't painted was the bottom.


I basically brayered the whole box with white gesso let it dry and added a few blue hue's to create an interesting background. I used the good old regular script stamp to add another layer stamping in paint, followed by JOFY mini stamp of flowers in a neutral paint colour. Next came a touch of stencilling with a Dylusions circle mask. This is the point I thought I'd finished.

I felt it needed a little something more and added Onyxite Treasure gold to all the edges which perked  it up no end.

Very sorry forgot that photo too!

I'm sure you can imagine the same pictures with brown edges
