Hi there !
Valentine’s day is around the corner and you’re so not ready ? I have a new project for you, an heart altered box :
It is a fun mixed media project to create for your Valentine, and you can filled it with chocolates, candies or lingerie if you want !
I started with a cardboard box and the Lotus stencil with Mud Paste (you can use heavy gesso or texture paste too). Once dried, I added some lace clay embellishments I prepared in advance (but you can you chipboard or wood ones) and covered everything with white gesso.
The box was then painted with Rose Velvet medium and set aside to dry… Meanwhile, I did covered all my embellishments with white gesso (paper flowers, metal leaves and flowers, clay flowers and letters).
The last part was to to create clusters and place the letters on the box ! A matching lace on the edge was the perfect final touch.
To help you create this box, I made a video tutorial that you can watch here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :
Thank you for your time. Hope to see you soon on our blog !
