My altered Tissue Box......

Hello everyone,
I would like to extend a lovely warm welcome to my new followers,
I hope you find some of my projects inspiring......
WHEN I REACH 300 FOLLOWERS
 I WILL BE GIVING SOME SPECIAL BLOG CANDY TO ONE LUCKY FOLLOWER.
WATCH THIS SPACE.....

I've had time to do a bit of crafting,
So without further ado, This is my latest project...
It's another SECRET one,
It's for my son for Christmas.
I know I can trust you to keep my secret....

This is how the box was when I bought it.


This is the finished box,
I've added a few "Nuts" to give it a masculine look.

I covered the box with Gesso, Then painted it & added some bits & bobs.

I then covered the bits & bobs with Gesso,
Once dry, I painted them.
Close-up of  the texture.

I love making these altered articles,
If Reg stayed still long enough, I might even alter him Ha Ha .....

Items used.
Tissue Box.
Gesso.
Various bits for embellishments
(This is where you can use all your bits up)
Acrylic Paint (Burnt Umber (The Works)
LuminArte' (Bronze Medallion)
Burlap (For the texture)
Box of Tissues to finish off.

Thank you so much for you visit,
I really appreciate your feedback.
Lots of love,
Sylvia X
