The challenge this time at Class Act is to create a masculine altered project. I went digging through my pile of alterable items and found a paper mache box.
I tried to create the feel of a chest that has been sent around the world. I asked my DH what he thought and he said "Oh that is nice, you could use it for a jewelry box." LOL! So much for what I think is masculine. :)
The base was painted with acyrlic paint (white). I let that dry and then pulled the orange dye ink across the surface which looked like grain in the wood. After that it was a mix of stamping and tissue tape.
The straps are made from leather strips and the buckles are from Zutter. I added a row of brass accents along the sides to add a little touch.
The stamp sets used for the project include: Wonderful World, Find Your Way, and Scribe.
You can check out the rest of the teams fabulous creations and the details of the challenge at the Class Act Insider.
So glad you stopped by!
