Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Altered Kleenex Box

Time for another challenge at Creative Artiste and my project this month is an altered Kleenex box. The Theme of the challenge is anything goes with a twist -  add some chipboard. 

We are proudly sponsored this month by

I painted my Kleenex box with gray gesso then added some chipboard pieces (butterfly, heart and flowers).  To fill in my piece I used dollar store bling and old jewelry to the box with Heavy  Gel Medium. I also add some diamond shaped wood pieces that I got from taking a part an old trivet.  One I was satisfied with my pattern I sprayed the box with several colours of ink sprays then when I completed the box I added a clear acrylic paint to protect it.

This is the box I started with.

Here is a few different views of the box.

This was a fun messy project that took we a couple of weeks to complete.   I think this project will find a home in my bedroom.   Thank you for stopping by.   Please pop over to the Creative Artiste Blog to see the other projects the design team created to inspire you.

Have a creative day.
