Happy New Year again

our new theme by Our creative corner

   "Christmas Leftovers"

Recycle your Christmas garbage. Gift wrap, empty gift wrap rolls, gift bags,
 gift boxes, tissue paper, ribbon...etc.
The project itself doesn't have to have a Christmas theme, just the items to use to make it.

great idea from Pamellia, one of our new very talented DT.
I decided to make an old or new ;-) altered Box from a christmas box. I love to play with colors and textures in Vintagestyle.


 box was first painted with white acrylic paint, then I have worked with various effect creams 
 (Facettenlack Croco Crackling Colour Veneziablau and silver cream)

then worked with distress spray inks /vintage photo + walnut stain  
sprayed and wiped

also added a few snippets old book pages with decoupage glue and
 a crackle stamp + staz on Jet Black stamped

 flowers are punched from old book pages and bright jeans cloth

Croco Crackling Creme silver applied in different strength

So bring your Christmas leftovers to Our creative corner
You could be our winner and be here in spotlight to show us something you have made or one of the Top 3 or the lucky winner, who will get a beautiful selection of treats from our sponsor

  1. Holy cow Kerstin, I am blown away right now! This is just spectacular! You have achieved such amazing textures, I want to reach out and touch it! What a transformation this box has made! The colours are stunning, so well blended and vibrant! Fabulous recycle / upcycle project! Happy New Years hugs from you new teamie :)

  2. A wonderful box with all the vintage details I love! Beautiful ! Happy new year kerstin !

  3. Kerstin, I have to admit that I have been admiring your tin from the very first time you posted it on the OCCDTF. The mind-blowing detail and texturing together with the neutral tones work perfectly together.My favourite part is the gorgeous dropped melted metal effect you created with "Croco Crackling Creme silver applied in different strength" and the little framed girl. I love how balanced the embellishment on the top of the box is and how it draws your eye in and then around to all the other amazing details. Perfect project.

  4. Happy New Year Kerstin! I hope you had a lovely Christmas.
    The transformation of this box is perfectly gorgeous. I adore all the wonderful texture you have created and your chosen colours are just stunning. Can you tell I love it?!!
