Sue is back for her next week at PaperArtsy.
I loved her altered pencil/sewing case, and decided to finish a project that has been hanging around my craft desk for ages : a wooden tissue Box.
I did have a go before, and hated the result so I stripped it down, and have been waiting for inspiration...
The top of the box is from the original attempt - it was texture paste that I stamped into. I just repainted it with Fresco Paints (Nougat, Irish Cream, Claret and Chocolate pudding)
For the sides I used metal. I embossed them, mounted them on black card then painted them with the same colours as the box.
Okay, it very subtle colour wise, but I like it :)
