Art with No Boundaries Ezine March Vol. 4 - Guest Artist

I made this as a Guest Artist entry in Art With No Boundaries Online Ezine March Vol. 4 and it's one of my favorites so far! Please go and check out all the other fantastic creations that Chris at CS Designs has made too!

I found this little box with coasters at a flea market and thought it would be a good project for recycling! =)
I wasn't sure what to make of it, after I had given my mum all the coasters, so decided to check through my digis first.

When I found CS Designsbeautiful Anna Wong image I just had to print her out and color her with my promarkers.
Her hair got a brown color, the decorations in her hair are in green, yellow and red tones and a slight touch of pink on her lips.

Then back to the box, I have package of asian style napkins that are well used for crafting, so I cut out a piece and used my decoupage glue to add it to the lid of the box. Since the wood is so dark I had to add two layers of napkins and I really like how it turned out! 

I added Anna Wong with my trusty glue and then used a stamp pad to chalk the edges of the lid in champagne. To make sure it wouldn't come off I use a varnish spray and on the areas where it didn't work, I added some more decoupage glue.
I really like how it turned out and maybe I'll keep it or give it to a friend, haven't decided yet! =)

  4. Hej vännen!
    Så fint du har gjort. Roligt att läsa om allt du gör.
    Tack, kycklingen har stora fötter oxå. Den blev ca 25 cm. Skulle gjort två kycklingar men det räckte med en.
    Här började det snöa igår kväll. Det snöar och blåser nu. Det som var så torrt och fint på gator och trottoarer.
    Hade så ont i huvudet igår sån där jobbig värk men nu är den borta.
    Har suttit och kikat på en saltinhalator har haft en sån tidigare och den funkade bra tyckte jag.
    Ha en bra dag.
