Altered Box

This time an altered box which originally housed Pretty Wooden hearts.

Its just a cute little 4" Square box with compartments. Was eyeing from the time i purchased those and had one such pretty moment to alter it....

Yeah...I made this for a blogger pal who is a wonderful soul, whose amazing talent is to turn any Trash (from micro to macro level) into Treasure. Her imagination is beyond human measure and am at awe at everytime of my visit to her blog.

She's none other than deary Rupa of Tofa. Its a must see.. must bookmark.. blog. Do visit and am sure you are gonna be mesmerised by the projects there :)

She has got my teeny tiny RAK and its time to post pics here...

Now left to her to say about it...As she is an expert in Altered Project...Its just my baby step in the altered art world :)


The back of the box is first coated with Prima chalk paint Sand and applied Prima White clear Crackle paste by hand in an uneven fashion. And after few minutes, started those moments of crackles...And was pretty enjoying those.

After is dried completely applied Rich cocoa momento ink and those crackled crevices took up those inks beautifully and the textures look were real yum...Sure am gonna try these lines of projects soon.

On the front, measured each compartment and it perfectly fitted for Cuttlebug square diecuts which are took from pp. The edges are sponged with toffee crunch momento ink, to give shabby effect and then modpodged it using Matt version.

Made floral sprays using Big blooms are brushed with wink of stella clear, few leaves, hip roses, mini roses. Prima resin frame (colored using prima chalkpaint - pink) housed a Love cabochon and few pearl strings added to it. Resin heart, prima resin swirls (colored with momento ink slightly, brushed with wink of stella clear), Kaisercraft Label banner - Friends , TH word band, 2 pink glitter alphas, few pearls.. all took its respective places to sync well :)

Now its your turn to say about this work :) Would love to hear it from you.
