A purple mixed media box for Made With Love...a short tutorial


Mixed-media-box

So I had a purple kind of weekend...and made 3 projects this weekend featuring purple.  Like this mixed media box for Made With Love. ;)


I started with a Graphic 45 mixed media box. As usual, I had a project in mind and got the cream coloured box but changed my mind and painted it black...*LOL* 


I applied some light modelling paste with The Crafter's Workshop stencil.


Then I applied Tattered Angels mist in a soft lilac shade....adding more mist for a more intense colour in certain spots.


I used the same mist to colour some gauze and then embellished with Petaloo blooms, leaves, pearls and bling.


I added some DCWV patterned papers to the Prima frames and embellished around them. A piece of vellum was added to the box window.


The rest of the box of the box was also covered with DCWV patterned paper. The "sexy" sentiment was taken from an old wrist band. [And yes, this was the found object that inspired this project..*winks*]
