Upcycled Liquor Box to a Watch Box

Upcycled Liquor Box to a Watch Box 

Hello dear friends

Today I am sharing with you a DIY watch box which I created upcycling a liquor carton and using the 3D Vintage Pocket Watch chipboard, the newly launched Texture Tools and Chalk Paints by Itsy Bitsy .

I used a sturdy liquor carton and using strong masking tape reshaped the carton to open horizontally........... to go with the colors on the box, I decided to use Tattered Lace, Wild Moss and Charcoal shades of Chalk Paints......


Upcycled Liquor Box to a Watch Box 

1. I lightly sanded the box and applied a coat of Wild Moss and charcoal all over the box. 
2. After drying,I added Camlin Acrylic Retarder to Tattered Lace chalk paint. This would allow more open time to create texture as chalk paints dry fast. I wanted the top layer to be textured and also show the colors used at the base .
I used both the texture Tools to create texture on the box............

You can see the different types of effects ( straight, curves, wood grain...) you can easily create using these tools as seen in the picture below.....

I have decoupaged this with DECOUPAGE NAPKIN MONUMENT on top of the textured surface...
Then, done some stenciling with Tattered Lace chalk paints............

I have layered with a clock MDF piece and flowers and chunky numbers from the Itsy Bitsy store to showcase the beautiful chipboard..........and fixed metal closure for the box.......

here is the inner look of the box . The inside is painted with Charcoal chalk paint and dry brushed with gold metallic paint.....the sentiment is computer generated, printed on cream card stock and matted on black card stock...

Acetate Tags


Hi Friends


I created some Vibrant Tags on acetate recently using the Itsy Bitsy Alcohol Splash sprays. I have used Purple haze, Citron Breeze, Golden Mocha and Frosty Pool on acetate here....Just dropped few drops of these colors on one tag , a spray of the alcohol blending solution and then squished with the other acetate tag.......


the colors dry fast on acetate too , I have mounted the tags on white card stock and added eyelet loosely so that it is possible to move the acetate tag and the card stock tag.

Added a matching twine and flowers from the Little Birdie collection and a sentiment to give it a completed look....





You can see other projects I created using Alcohol Splash on the Itsy Bitsy blog here ...........

Expose yourself to your deepest fear...........






Hello Friends
My second post for today, I have used DecoArt media fluid acrylics and Andy Skinner SunBurst Stencil and Andy Skinner Serendipity stencil for this Jim Morrison canvas. 

the background is created with the Acrylic layering and Isopropanyl Alcohol, you can see this technique in this video by Andy Skinner. 



I used Gel Medium between the last two layers of colors and removed the top layer of colors after stenciling the image from the face and surrounding area........


The image is stencilled using a hand -cut stencil borrowed from a dear friend Shilpi G Shivhare. Used DecoArt Media Gesso in Blackhttp://decoart.com/mixedmedia/gesso and the sentiment with the DecoArt Media Modeling paste in white for stenciling. Some sentiments are from  Americana Inspiration stencil 



Finished with paint splatters......

“Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.”

Mothers Day Cards with Gold Alcohol Splash

Hi friends

I am so sorry that I have not been very active in blog land and on FB the past few weeks. My elder son had an accident and is advised complete rest for 6 weeks. He is getting better and I thank god as the healing is progressing well. 

As can be imagined, it is the toughest task for a hyper-active 21 year old to be restricted to bed with minimum movement advised, so blogging takes a back seat and the mum has to take charge :)

However I managed to squeeze out some time to try the newly launched Gold Alcohol Splash Inks by Itsy Bitsy and created two cards for Mother’s day. For more details visit the Itsy Bitsy blog here, I am sure you would love to try out these new Alcohol sprays...........
