31 Days of Halloween - Day 5

Good Morning everyone, or afternoon/evening depending on where you live. I'm blown away by everyone's projects thus far and have made a list of things I want to steal copy and make for myself. Here's my project for today, it's a box. I LOVE boxes! A place to hide or store something (sometimes it's difficult to remember exactly what's in there), and this box is for all those little witchy type accoutrements, like candles, matches, incense, mini bottles of herbs, crystals, even a small altar cloth. Grab-n-go anywhere, outside, to the park, wherever you desire.


Barely made it again Wanted to finish this up last night, but had forgotten how long this crackle stuff takes to really dry. Base coated with Territorial Beige, a coat of hide glue, then Christmas Green on top. When it was dry I stamped a few stars in gold, and moons in white. For the main image I used Inkadinkado's new Witches set in Staz-on, added a little color, distressed the edges in Antique Linen. Added some no-hole beads to the sides, and one of my flowers. I'll be back to add a better picture.
