Altered Treasure Trove Step by Step Tutorial

I got this box as a gift for my Birthday from my sister-in-law ......what a thoughtful gift!!!
As soon I got the box so many ideas went through my mind....
it was a 12" by 12" box,pretty big one.
 I decided to try Image Transfer with Mod Podge here I go lets get started.....

First I removed the hinges and the lock , gave a coat of Gesso and left it to dry completely.....then applied 3 coats of Beige color paint leaving it to dry between coats.

Printed the image from Graphic Fairy on three different color paper,chose the beige color.....very very pretty image.

Applied a thick coat of mod podge on the printed side and stuck it on the box....removed all the air bubbles with a brayer. Left it to dry overnight.

With a wet towel I removed the paper very slowly.VOILA!!!Image Transfer done.

Now time to do some decoupage......I cut out various parts from the paper napkin and aligned to see how it looks.

 Then I stuck everything with Mod Podge.

Added script with Crafter's Workshop stencil Art Is and texture paste.

Added glitter to the flowers and sprayed clear gloss varnish ......After finishing,the image looked very pretty  so I tried to hang it on the wall.

Cracked Paint Decoupage box

Hi All!!!!
For this month Challenge at Simply Create Too Blog is "Anything Goes". So here I am with an Altered box. Let's get started now......

This box had a sheet of  mica covering the entire box ,I tried to paint on top of it but it didn't stick I peeled the mica sheet from the box.

This is how it looks after removing the mica.....

For the cracked effect.....first I painted black all over and left to dry completely.Then applied a thin coat of crackle medium,left it to dry still it became slightly sticky. After that I painted white on top....within seconds the cracks will appear.

 Decoupage on the Box

The cracks are seen through the tissue.

Stamped and embossed the sentiment.....the rose diecut is from Elizabeth Crafts. Added color to the edges with distress ink.

Stuck the Hinges with E6000

Decoupage on Glass Candle

After a long time I did a candle....melted the wax and added my favorite perfume to it. Poured the wax into a 3"tall glass and let it to cool down for couple hours. I got these paper napkins from . I just took a part of the paper.....applied mod podge on the glass and stuck the tissue. I outlined the image with black permanent marker.Once it dried gave it 2 coats of Sparkle Mod Podge. To finish it off added the rhinestones to the top and bottom edge.

Mixed Media Card

Hello Everyone!!
This mixed media card was made for Eclectic Ellapu Challenge with a special recipe - 3 Dies ,2 stencils and 1 sentiment.
For the base I used Crafter's Workshop Brick stencil and added a layer of texture paint over the Crafter's Workshop Art Is stencil.

Painted Gesso on the square Chipboard , printed the image from Graphics Fairy and did an image transfer with mod podge . Distressed it around edge and added glaze to it.
