Hi! Did I wish you all a Happy New Year… no, not really… isn’t it obvious that the 2013 will be the greatest ever? of course it is… for everyone…
I’m opening this season with a mixed media/decoupage box. I wanted to play a bit with decorating a wooden box with embossed pieces of paper. Firstly, I painted them metallic copper and once glued, they were treated with a silver rub-on. The top of the box has a scrapbook paper (both the background and the clock faces) glued to it with a thick layer of mod podge. Several layers of varnish later I carefully positioned a couple of brass clock on top of the clock faces to match the time theme.
The bottom was painted antique gold and then distressed with my favourite distressing tools, namely ink pads, a quite of few of them actually. I only gave a one layer of satin finish to the sides, this in contrast to the mirror like top finish.
