Last Days Of Summer


Since the first day of Fall is this Wednesday, I thought I'd better hurry up and post this altered food box that I made several weeks ago.  The box was first spritzed with Adirondack sprays in blue shades, when dry it will need to be sprayed with a sealer because the spray will dry to the touch but will smear if rubbed.  While it was drying images from the StampendousSea Side Chair Perfectly Clear Set were stamped on Mixed Media White paper with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, colored with colored pencils, cut out and glued to the box with 3 in 1 Glue from Beacon Adhesives.  The sentiment was stamped on white paper, layered onto blue paper and popped up on the box.  A VersaMark pad was smooshed on the bottom of the box, sprinkled with Golden Sand Embossing Powder and heated.  A variety of May Arts Ribbon were tied along the metal handle.  
I picked some fabric tags up at Michaels and thought I would stamp and stencil them to go with the box.  The first tag was stamped with Archival ink in black and colored Archival inks were stippled on to color the palm fronds and the ocean. A VersaMark Pen was used at the edge of the ocean, then it was sprinkled with Shabby White Embossing Enamel and heated.

The shells on the second tag were stenciled on using Dreamweaver Stencils, Shell Wreath Stencil and Archival inks.  A VersaMark Pen was used to add ink under the shell, then sprinkled with Golden Sand Embossing Powder and heated. The sentiment was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento.  The tags were then tied to the side of the box.

Stay connected and don't miss a thing!
