Sewing Box

Good Morning, fellow crafters and blog followers, hope your week has gone well. Now for the weekend and an extra hour in bed......yes.....
Today, I am going to share something different with you, not a card but a box!
This is my first play with this type of technique so please be gentle with me...
But it is good to try new things ....So I believe..
This is my finished sewing box,
This is the inside,
And this is the front,
A base layer of Gesso and then acrylic paint is applied to the box to start with.
Then I stamping onto white Tissue paper. I used a variety of colours of VersaFine ink and the Sewing Mends The Soul stamps from IndigoBlu.
I then cut these out, and yes there were a few of them ...but I did have my cup of coffee at hand and my Labrador Tess at my feet.
I then used Slap it On, (this is a type of Matt, glue and glaze from IndigoBlu) which I painted on to the box, carefully placed an image on and then re applied a layer of slap it on. 
A final layer of of the Slap it on was applied over the whole box, this took about an hour to dry and has a Matt finish.
I do hope you like this, I really enjoyed making it and I am now looking around to see what I can cover next.
Thanks for looking and call back soon,
Jo. X

It really is lovely Jo ...but so much nicer in real life. I am hoping to have a go at one this week so you have really inspired me! xx

This is beautiful Jo. Love the colours. Be careful, it becomes addictive though. You find yourself looking around the house for things to cover :)
Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Thanks for reminding me about the clocks going back - I'd forgotten! xx

Hi Joe, I have this stamp set love. I love the sewing box looks great. This Tissue paper effect looks great with the Indigo Blu "eye" stamp inside a box. Looking forward to NEC, we still meeting for Cappuccino??
