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......

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...
