This is only my 3rd Mixed Media project and I LOVE how it turned out! It's a small Shabby Chic looking box to hold some pretty teabag packages in. The finished size is about 3 1/2 x 3 1/2.
I used my Silhouette Cameo and bought a box shape from the Silhouette online store and cut out my box shape on Ivory paper. Then I stamped various areas of the paper with a medallion stamp from Stampendous. I colored all over the box parts with some Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Paint. Then I used some more Distress Paints on various areas, namely the corners. I rubbed the color in with my fingers, and when I did that, the paint actually had a nice patina on it. I cut a flourish I found from the Silhouette online store and a stamped teacup image from a retired Flourishes stamp set, then painted both in with the paints, and added them to the box and acetate window. To finish the box and add some clsss, I used pearls to finish the look off.
