Paint box by SHARON NETTLESHIP

Hi I really fell in love with this month's kit it's stunning. I had to force myself to cut into the beautiful papers. I wanted to make something that would sit on my desk so I could see them so I decorated a box that I keep my media paints in. 
First I chose my card and papers and cut them into layers to cover the box top, top sides and box sides. I used Vintage photo oxide ink to edge the sides. 
I used a stitch stamp to edge each of the patterned papers that would go on the lid. You could use a sewing machine if you had no stamps. 
Next I picked out some of the patterned papers and card. I tore down the sides and again edged them in the vintage photo ink. Each of the pieces were layered up and adhered. I cut out one of the framed pieces from the 05 paper and used a stencil to add some inked blots. I then adhered it to the top of the layered pieces. 
There's some beautiful pieces to fussy cut on the 07 so I picked some of the art pieces, a flower piece and a plant pot. Made a cup of tea and then began to fussy cut. It takes a bit of patience but worth it! All the pieces were then edged in the ink again. I used a wet glue for most of the pieces but for the fussy cut flowers and plant I used 3D foam pads to make them lift a little.  In the add on kit you get some some little chipboard pieces. I took the Art one and coloured it with spun sugar and vintage photo ink and adhered it to the framed piece. I also added a tab and some flowers. 
I then adhered all the pieces to the sides of the box.
Lastly I added the piece for the top of the lid. I used double sided tape for this as the papers were quite curvy.  I thought it needed a little bit of bling at this stage so I also added some frantage embossing powder.
