This Months Theme is Something that includes Green :-) We had such a Fantastic response for February with 54 entries, let's see if We can top that this month!! :-)
My first project this month is an Altered Box, here is the step by step process!! :-)
The first two photo's seem to have been deleted from My Camera, so You will have to imagine a blank wooden box which was first painted in a green Acrylic paint!! :-)
I tore a piece of manuscript paper and inked around the edges and stuck it to the top of the box with Claudine Hellmuth Multi Medium in Matte.
I then used some of the same green paint and swiped it over the paper with a baby wipe.
I cut the pink flower from some wrapping paper and again stuck it down with the Multi Medium.
once dry I sprayed the whole box with Glimmer Mist Iridescent Gold.

I then stuck some pretty lace all the way around the lid using glossy accents.
Once this was dry I then stuck some flat back pearl string on top of the lace again using
I cut a single ribbon rose from a length if trim and stuck it down on the bottom left corner.
I then stuck a green Cameo on to a pink button and placed them on to the rose to make a
I had a metal butterfly and made a body for it using a charm with Believe on it and placed a pink pearl in the hole to make a head. I then stuck it to the top left of the box.
I stuck a small paper rose in the lady's hair
I used a Sakura Stardust pen colour Clear Star to add some detail to the wings on the lady.

I also put some false handles on the sides of the box to add the finishing touches.
