For the challenge this week, I was inspired to create a mixed media box using Tim Holtz Vignette Boxes Structures and decorated with Idea-Ology Botanical Layers Paperie. To start this project, I covered the box with Gesso and then Tim Holtz Distress Paints with various shades after the Gesso was dry.

Inside the box, I pasted some layers of flowers from Idea-Ology Botanical Layer paperie and I outlined the flowers with Copic black ink pen. To created the dimension, I used foam dots to paste these embellishments.

The cage and the bird were die cut using chipboard and Tim Holtz Cage and Bird die. They were colored with Distress Paints and pasted inside the box using foam dots. I added the sentiment with Chit Chat Small Talk Sticker.

Some more flower and metal embellishments were added to decorate the box. I distressed the edges of the box using Distress Paints. 

I really enjoy playing different medias on different bases. Join us for this week's fun challenge and show us what you create "INSIDE THE BOX".
