First mission accomplished

The first of the Advent boxes is done. It was funny, every time I did a bit I thought there was just a little more to do. I did the next bit then decided on something else. Still I am pleased with the result though not the photograph, I seem to have some odd shadows on the stocking.

















Next task is to start on the second one, it will be a different colour though.

Another great workshop

…at Pickleberry Papercrafts with Jennie from The Artistic Stamper.


All we knew was the title of the day – Christmas Curio Box, along with the fact that we would be using Ranger products and Jennies own stamps along with other things as needed.


We Gessoed (is that a real word!), painted, added texture paint, sprayed, tinted and glitzed the box then worked on the inside bits. Stamping, alcohol inks, distress inks, UTEE, sticking and gluing and this is the end result of mine








I had to finish it off this morning and the tree was the most time consuming . I also  should have used the flash on the closed photo, it would have shown the colour better.


I am off back to the attic after a spot of lunch to make a start on the advent boxes for the boys. They will take a while so don’t expect to see them any time too soon!
