Altered Tissue Box Cover

Hi Everyone - betcha were starting to wonder if I forgot how to use mists...  a break is good once in a while, no?    This is a wooden tissue box cover that I made for Tattered Angels and Green Tara.

The box was misted with several glimmer mists (Butternut Squash, Mallard, Timberline, Blackberry Cordial, Haunted Shadows)...

and then I added the flowers (Gardenia White, White Apple Blossoms) coloured with Indian Summer and Hawaiian Hibiscus glimmer glaze.  The leaves were cut from one of the Green Tara handmade papers, which take mists just beautifully!

Twinkle Toes glimmer glam, heat gun till it bubbles and repeat – several times.  When the whole project was done, it received a top coat of Snow Queen glimmer mist.

I love this jute ribbon.  It's perfect for autumn coloured projects, as well as masculine pages & cards.

Supplies (Green Tara):
jute ribbon - 9mm Natural Jute Ribbon
handmade paper (for leaves) - 3D Natural
flowers - Gardenia White, White Apple Blossoms

Other Supplies:
Glimmer Mist, Glimmer Glam, Glimmer Glaze - Tattered Angels
stencils - The Crafters Workshop, Creative Imaginations (maple leaves), $ store (letters)
other - wood tissue box cover
