I bought a very ugly homemade wooden box at a thrift store in the beginning of March. When I got the summer issue (in April!) of Cloth paper scissors I knew what I wanted to do with it!
So I painted and collaged over it, and behold, this is how it looks now:
Yes, collage artist Misty Mawn, whose blog I often visit.
She wrote a great article on how she creates these amazing backgrounds on paper and on 3D-items (like boxes) too. I love her style and it was so fun to try to add more paint layers than I usually take the time to do… and creating this Misty Styled Girl was great fun too! I want to decorate more boxes!
Visit Misty to see some great art, or comment below to tell me what you think of my humble attempt on an artsy tea box…
