Together, we’re also are giving away a crafter’s prize pack worth over $600!
Be sure to scroll to the end of the post to continue on the hop after checking out a stunning mixed media altered box from Clearsnap team member Meihsia Liu: Meihsia here today to share a mixed media keepsake box featuring many awesome products from our wonderful sponsors. I am sure that girls will love this beautiful keepsake box just as much as the treasures they will keep in it. This Keepsake Box I received from Walnut Hollow is 2.49″ x 10.71″ x 7.31″ basswood and baltic birch plywood box. To start this project, apply Gesso on the box both inside and outside with a brush. Create textures on the box with textured paste using a palette knife, and adhere some embellishments with foam swirls. After the textured paste on the box is dry, apply Izink inks with various colors with a brush. Spray and blend the colors using Izink Spray with water. Heat set with a heating tool. To soften the color scheme, apply a thin layer of Gesso with a brush. Sprinkle some Iced Enamels Inclusions randomly on the box for more interest. To protect the colors and textures on the box, apply a thin layer of decoupage medium with a brush. To finish off this project, attach the fabric flowers with Tombow Foam Tape on the box. Here are some more detail shots of this keepsake box. I really love the fantastic colors of Izink inks and the gorgeous Iced Enamels Shattered Inclusions on the box. This is going to be the perfect holiday gift for girls. I hope you like my keepsake box and the tutorial, and got inspired to create your holiday gift using these awesome products.
