Hello there. Today I am sharing my project that I made with the January Mixed Media kit, featuring this 12X12 Chicken Wire Shadowbox, A variety of of paints, including a weathered wood crackle medium, lovely Prima Marketing and Darice flowers, and some gorgeous chipboard elements from Creative Embellishments.
Here’s what I came up with.
I started out by using the purple paint on the wood box. Then I added the crackle medium. Once dry, I added the silver paint which gave the texture of random crackle on the box. Then, I lightly added some more of the purple and silver paints, basically giving it a bit of a dry brushing. Before it dried, I wiped off the paint with a baby wipe, and finished it by adding some purple chalk inks for some variety in color.
Next, I took a piece of the 49 and Market paper from the kit and hand drew a heart to cut out. Then I added some faux stitching with a sewing wheel and black marker. I also added some black lace from my stash around the heart.
Next, I used embossing powders to the chipboard quote and glued it on to the paper. Then I added the flowers from the kit. I had an extra pack of the white Prima Marketing flowers from the kit in my stash, so I used a few from that pack as well.
Lastly, I used embossing powders on the Creative Embellishments chipboard doily, cut it in half, and placed the halves on opposite corners of the shadowbox. I used the remaining purple flowers and a couple of the flowers from the scrapbook kit on the doily pieces.
