Today I have Altered a Wooden Box.

I took a hexagon shaped MDF box.
First I put Gesso on the base and all sides of the box.
After it dried I smoothed it with sand paper.
Then I mixed 3 acrylic colors ( Green, Yellow and White) and painted all over the box.
Heat dried it. Then again with the sand paper I smoothed the surface and the sides of the box.
Now my base was ready. I took a napkin , cut it into randomly according to the design.
with the help of the Mod Podge I stuck the printed napkin all over the box..
Kept it to dry for sometime. Then with a chicken wire stencil added little white textured paint and distressed it with mustard seed DI
Added yellow Handmade fringe flowers, White ready flowers and some peps
with quilled Green scrolls and few metal charms.
Also added a tiny glass bottle with little pearls in it.
Stuck a SUNSHINE sentiment and 2 butterfly die cut from Kaisercraft.
Finally added Pearls all round the top of the hexagon box.

Challenge #14 Altered Frame

                                      Like every time we have  a  gift for the winner :)

                                        


Keeping in mind with this month's challenge I have altered a wooden showpiece which also acts as a photo holder . This has been altered for someone special in my life ;)

I totally loved altering it .This still needs a photo which I will add later . So let's get to the process of altering this piece of wooden frame.



If you have any rough edges on the product you plan to alter you can use a sandpaper to smoothen the edges .Once done you can apply a coat of primer . Get the desired acrylic paint for portions that are visible I used a mixture of white and blue .Once done get your beautiful pattern paper/decoupage napkins in my case Kaisercraft Storyteller papers cut them and stick them to the wooden base with the help of synthetic resin fevicol .

You will have lot of rough edges of sheets poking out .Don't Worry ! Once the glue dries scrape of the paper as much as possible with the help of a blade then use a sandpaper to smoothen the edges . 
Then use distress inks to distress the edges and to give a smooth finish to your frame.


                               

 Once that is done apply a thin coat Mod Podge -Matt on the whole frame. Keep the movement of the brush in one direction while applying the same . Be it up and down or sideways. Let it dry for good 3- 4 hours .In my case I let it dry overnight .









Once this is done you can decorate it as your hearts wish . I have used metal and resin embellishments to beautify my project . 

 Craft Supplies Used :-

Kaisercraft Storyteller Paper pad
Metal embellishments
Resin embellishments
Mod Podge -Matt
Synthetic Resin Fevicol
White and Blue acrylic paint
Distress Ink- Salty Ocean
