Out of the Box

Today was the due date for the Mystic Paper Design Team January project to be turned in. You remember that we were each given a wooden shape (see Undecorating Christmas post)with the instructions to select our own paper, and whatever direction we took with the shape was up to us. I wanted to do something "out of the box".
The shape sat on my table for a few day before I decided to put it "in a box".

I covered the wooden shape with the Basic Gray "Pinot Noir" patterned paper. Sanded the edges and distressed it with
Tim Holtz "Frayed Burlap" and "Old Paper" Distress Ink.I sprayed a spritz or two of the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in "Sage" and "Coffee Shop" on the patterned paper. A corner of the "Chardonnay" paper was used as a frame for my image. The edges of the shape were covered with Stickles "Waterfall" to give it just a bit of sparkle.

The bird was cut out of the "Chardonnay". I back him with two layers of chip board to give him some dimension. Sanded the edges and added the distress ink. It was also edged with Stickles. The half circle medallion was treated the same way. With the addition of some blue rhinestones for Kaiser scrapbook. The rub ons are Jenni Bowlin. These are all mounted on book board covered in bits and pieces of the "Pinot Noir", "Chardonny" and "Chablis" BG. Then sanded, distressed and sprayed with the glimmer mist. I added some of Mystic Paper's great vintage look ribbon and a few more rhinestones.

I got mine turned in today, it was finished last week, but I hadn't had a chance to get into Mesa until today. Head on over to Sheri, Lindsey and Yasu's blogs and take a look at the different ways we used our wooden shape.
