I love creating mixed media art projects. I created this box art using a little wooden box from Michael's. I applied a coat of Gesso and then a coat of white acrylic paint inside and out. I used gel medium to apply a music background on the top of the box. The triangle sides were embellished with decorative tape in black and white with French writing (Tim Holtz). I applied cotton lace trim around the sides of the box lid. Tip: Apply vellum tape (or your choice of double sided tape) to your lace or ribbon trims prior to using them, to give a more professional look when applying. It is much easier to work with this way as well. The image I selected for this altered box is one from Paper Whimsey. I have framed it with a frame from Martha Stewart and embellished with pink paper roses and glittered hearts. Hope you like it. Hugs, Gayle.
