Not boxed out yet!

Hi all

Many thanks for stopping by.

I am still playing and loving the new Chalk paints by DecoArt. Today I also used a fabulous stencil by the very talented and funny Carolyn Dube.  Do look her up on Youtube.

I started with a box I found, which was rather battered and cracked.

It had a big crack across the lid, but don't think you can see it from this photo.

I ripped out the insides (cruel I know) covered it with gesso to, hopefully, fill in the holes left where I had taken the insides out and to cover the crack on the top. Sanded when it was dry. 

Using Carolyn's stencil and a palette knife, I scraped DecoArt Modeling Paste through the stencil all over the top roughly. The roughly part wasn't on purpose, it was just my cack- handedness! 

Painted with a mixture of the Chalk paints on the outside,

then on the inside too!

Do hope you liked it.
