October Artistic Outpost Blog Hop

image
    Welcome! It is time again for our Artistic Outpost blog hop. This time the DT gets to choose their theme or project. I made this box for my best friend. She is going through a very difficult time presently and I thought the quote from the Chalkboard Wisdom stamp plate fit perfectly.

     The box started out like this. I applied gesso and some Graphic 45 paper. I used a stencil with texture paste. I used Distress Paints to add more color.

    I tried to leave the box with plain paper but I couldn’t help my self. I had to use some paints and texture paste.

    The top of the box is decorated with a frame, flowers and a pretty vintage image along with the stamped sentiment.
    Thank you for stopping by. Please hop along to see some gorgeous projects by the Design Team members.

  • What a lovely box with beautiful detail and color for your best friend. She is blessed to know you. The expression of words on the box are so true and have so much meaning. Beautiful!

  • Beautiful vintage piece….I am sure your friend will appreciate your thoughtfulness and art. Great color and texture.

  • I hope your friend can open that beautiful box and just leave her troubles inside. I love all the texture and distressing. I would just want to “feel” the box!

  • This is absolutely gorgeous, Kate. I really love the embossed design. Can you share with me what stencil that is (I must have it!!!) and what kind of embossing paste you used. You have inspired me so much with your recent embossed pieces. I really like the soft colors on this one too. An altogether sensational piece of work. And the sentiment is so perfect – hope it will lift your friend’s spirits!
    Hugs.
