Today I have a little surprise for you. I will show you how to decorate a wooden box with Mists and Embossing powders from Lindy’s. It is a very simple and effective way to alter something and I hope you will like it.
Start by coating the box with gesso or chalky paint, once dry use a hot glue gun to attach some beautiful 3D objects or embellishments and then add more gesso.
You will be able to make nice scrape effects by using dish sponge to add the color to the rest of the box – then dry with a heat gun. Mix a little Cotton Candy Pink magical powder and use a sponge to add this over the surface. Keep layering the colors, drying between each layer, until you are happy with the effect. I used Urban Amethyst as my final layer of color.
I love the embossing effect, when you add Guten Tag Teal embossing power over a sticky word!
Add a few touches of gold and some white paint splatters to finish the box and highlight the texture, the gold also really makes the colors pop!
You can watch how I created this below or over on the Lindy’s Stamp Gang channel on YouTube.
