Environment is a hot topic these days. I am not going to discuss politics, but I do support recycling. Giving an object a second chance to shine is a great initiative, that I try to reflect in scrapbooking.
I had this old box for some time, probably some of my husban'd gadgets. There is a little window at the bottom. When I heard of Fabrika Decoru's challenge, I thought this box would be perfect for chocolates.
I decided to turn this box into elf's little house. I enlarged the window to size of a door and "wrapped" the box into beautiful paper from Fabrika Decoru "Smile of Spring".
Wooden background fits perfectly the winter theme. The front of the box I stamped with some circles and doilies and toned it down with white gesso.
The door itself is made of a cardstock, painted with black gesso, then embossed with white gesso. In order to add natural forest tones, I used water colour paint in brown and green. The wooden structure is added by pushing through the cardstock with a thick needle.
Most of the greenery is by Tim Holtz, heavily distressed with dark green and red ink. Embellishments are kept natural. As the final touch, I applied snow paste and glitter.
Now it is time to sneak and steal a piece of chocolate :-)
Thank you for stepping by, wish you a great day ahead!
I would like to enter a challenge from Fabrika Decoru #1
