Hello Everyone. Thank you for finding time to visit Jumbled Crafts it is always appreciated.
It's time for another challenge at Artful Times and this time Von has chosen Heavy Metal as the theme. You can make anything you like so long as it follows the theme and you could win a prize when of £10 to spend at Oyster Stamps
I made this box to keep some jewelry in that is too big to go in my usual jewelry box.
I started out with this box
I used a spare piece of card and measured a piece the size of the box top
Covered it PVA
Stuck on various things-mesh fruit bags are great to use and little plastic embellishment as well. Even a pipe cleaner
Then I covered it with metal tape and started to stamp and etch here and there to add more texture and to bring out the shapes I had added underneath the tape Next I added black acrylic paint and worked it in to look like dirt and finally polish the whole thing to being back some shine.
I covered the rest of the box with metal tape and rubbed it lightly with the black paint then wiped it off again and polished as before. Then I lined the inside with craft paper and fastened on the piece I had made for the top. I used strong tape and also brads to fasten it on. I then added an Avon Breast Cancer pin which is used to open the lid.
Hope you will join in with us for the challenge as it is always great to see your ideas.
Have a great day
Love Chrissie x
