Altered Boxes Eclectic Paperie Challenge

Altered Heart

  I decided to join in on the fun with Eclectic Paperie challenge to alter a box.   Lots of layers - tissue paper, gesso, dylusions ink spray, distress ink, perfect pearls and embossing, were all experimented with.

I finished off with a collection of flowers I have made over time ranging from embossed plastic to beeswax.  I am really happy with the way this turned out.

  1. Awesome. I wonder if I can make old shipping boxes into like this. I want to try make it my own. Cheers.

  2. How beautiful! Love that stacked flower embellishment on top and all the soft inking. Thanks for joining us at eclectic Paperie!

  3. Darling project, Fern! I love the heart shape, vs. a standard square box, and love the color combo and decorations! Thanks so much for joining the eTeam Picks challenge at eclectic Paperie!
