This week on PaperArtsy blog it's Carol Quance's last week as guest designer. Carol altered a pencil case, I have altered a pencil box into a memory box.
I started with Grunge Paste and a stencil, I liked the bees as I had recently bought a Memory Box die of bumble bees (that are miniscule and self assembly) and wanted an excuse to try them.
I based the whole thing in Fresco Finish Cinnamon, then Crackle glazed areas, then I covered the whole thing in a rough and ready coat of Cheesecake, and using an old knackered brush highlighted the stencilled area in Pumkin Soup. Using the grasses from HP105 and sepia versafine I "stamped in the hand" a border around the base of the box and used the sentiment from ID06 to "title" the piece.
