I am back with another project using Prima's Romance Novel Collection. I seriously cannot get enough of this collection! However, I have vowed that my next project will utilize a different collection =)
I created this altered cigar box using a variety of products from Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts, Tim Holtz, Bead Landing, and more. I tried to incorporate a shabby chic look, but a lot of grunge too! That's why I call it "Grunge Chic".
Here's a closer look at some of the details...
it was hard to capture on film, but I alcohol inked the entire box with gold and silver alcohol ink, crackled, and dry brushed it with black acrylic paint.
I also used texture paste to add dimension.
The best was I can describe my creative process is creating a layout I like and then jamming embellishments anywhere I can! I always create a layout and then completely veer off path and just pile products on!
This box is for a new friend of mine and I really hope she likes it!
Thanks for looking =)
