Tissue Box Cover…

I was recently spending some time with my mother and she was having a little tidy around before more guests arrived. Her flat is lovely and light.
I was sitting by the window and noticed that her furniture was looking very co-ordinated.
My mum went shopping for some cushions to go on her turquoise sofa once and came back with red ones…she currently has ones which co-ordinate with her sofa!

Anyway whilst sitting there I noticed the only glaring item was a box of tissues, bought for the quality of the tissues and not the pretty box!

So, I decided that the next time I visited Hobbycraft I’d get another box to decorate.

This is what I did… img_7417.jpg

First of all I painted the whole thing inside and out in white acrylic paint and left to dry.

Then I painted it all a turquoise blue and left that to dry.

 

Then I chopped my sponge to a rectangular shape and ‘stamped’ white rectangles all over the top and sides of both box and lid.

Once that was dry I added some dark turquoise paint on top
img_7435.jpgI let that dry and then decided to add a little ‘bling’. I splodged my Pentel Gold marker on some scrap card to get a little puddle of gold and then stamped with the gold on top of everything.

Well, that’s it, all done.

Hope she will like it!
Back soon, love Rosie
