Sewing Box

Good evening fellow crafter, hope your week is going well. Today, I am going to share something different with you, not a card but a box! This is my first play with this type of technique, so please be gentle with me… But it is good to try new things ….So I believe.. This is my finished sewing box,

 This is the inside,

And this is the front,

A base layer of Gesso and then acrylic paint is applied to the wooden box to start with. Then I stamping onto white Tissue paper. I used a variety of colours of VersaFine ink and the Sewing Mends The Soul stamps.

I then cut these out, and yes there were a few of them …but I did have my cup of coffee at hand and my Labrador Tess at my feet.

I then used Slap it On , which I painted on to the box, carefully placed an image on and then re applied a layer of Slap it On.

 A final layer of of the Slap it On was applied over the whole box, this took about an hour to dry and has a Matt finish. I do hope you like this, I really enjoyed making it and I am now looking around to see what I can cover next.

Thanks for looking and call back soon, Jo. X

  3. WoW! This is fabulous!! I actually have an old wooden sewing box my father-in-law made me years ago. It is just plain wood and this idea would be perfect for someone like me who is becoming very interested in trying to ‘alter’ things. This is now bookmarked. Thank you :0)
