Over to today's projects!


Altered Box : Noel 









  • Took a hexagonal sweetbox (Turkish Delight) which i was hoarding for 4 years now and made into a festive shadow box.
  • I have nestled the bottom and the lid as 1st and 2nd layers and the inner most is the plastic liner of the box.
  • Gave nice heavy gesso coat to all the layers and nestled as shown in the picture.
  • Then gave a thick layer of white crackle paste kept for the crackles by air drying, as heat gun usage may disfigure the plastic liner of the box.
  • After drying, gave a nice coat of fiber paste to the bottom of the box.
  • Misted the whole box with Lindy's sprays in various colors of the blue.
  • Used the chipzebs christmas for the christmassy scene which i used light paste and topped with some chunky white embossing enamel and white glitters.
