A box for Crafty Individuals March Challenge

Hi folks,

Just sharing a box I have made using Crafty Individuals 6x6 Packground Papers Book 3 (Springtime) for their March box challenge. I can hardly bear to cut into these papers, they are just too pretty but as you can see, a little goes a long way and the dreamy colours provide a beautiful effect. I managed to use just one peice to cover the outside of the box - result!

I made the bottom of the box measuring 8cm x 8cm square with 5.5cm sides. I used a Magnolia die for the top and scored to fit the 8x8 bottom. I used the springtime papers to cover to box adding die cuts from Spellbinders and Martha Stewart before painting with Claudine Helmuth Gesso, Classic Teal and Landscape Green Studio Semi Gloss Acrylics. I painted through some netting to create a bit of texture.

Finishing touches were some acrylic gems from Paperchase, Rangers Ice Stickles in Mint Ice and felt trim from the Magnolia Vintage Box 2 kit.

Just sharing a little card I have made combining my new dies from Magnolia Vintage Box 2, stamps from Crafty Individuals CI-277 and paper from Prima Marketing Free Spirit 6x6 pad.

Happiness is timespent with a friend

Hello sunshine, at last the spring has truly broken.

Today I am spending some time with a good friend I don't get the chance to see too much of with us both having heavy schedules. So today is a special day and I felt inspired to make a canvas to celebrate spring, happy times and friendship.

I have used my favourite Crafty Individuals stamps  ref CI - 277 for the images and text.
The rest of the canvas was created with:
Claudine Hellmuth Studio semi gloss acrylic paint in landscape green, classic teal, sable  brown and gesso. I also just added texture with buttons, sequins, drywall tape, bubble wrap glitter glue and lace. I also used Prima Free Spirit collection perceptions papers ripped and glued down with Mod Podge matt adhesive.

I hope the sun is shining down on you today.x
