Altered Mitten Box
Today I would like to share with you my first official Tattered Angels project - a mitten box. This month we were challenged to incorporate wood into our projects - and I chose to alter this old CD rack. I no longer needed it for CD's - my collection has long outgrown this box - so I decided it would make a good basket for the front entry to hold all our mittens.
It was rather boring as is, but some Glimmer Mist fixed that problem pretty quick. ;)
I used glimmer screens with texture medium to create the design on the front, then spritzed with several shades of Glimmer Mist.
Once all the main colours were dry, I added a different texture medium all around the top edge, that looks more like ice crystals. I allowed that to dry, then added Chalkboard Mist in "Chalk" to make it look a little more like snow.
I used the Glimmer Screens on the sides as well, this time with just the Glimmer Mist.
Supplies (Tattered Angels):
Glimmer Mist - Denim Blue, Sapphire, Artic Blue, Moonlight, Dragonfly, Pashmina, Winterpine
Chalkboard mist - Chalk
Glimmer Screens - Winter Crystals (snowflakes), Fanciful Stencils (flourish)
