a shabbified tresor box 36

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, April 20, 2016 @ 9:48 PM | , , ,

Hi! Tonight I was in the mood to get crafty and create an altered shabbified tresor box  for the Creative Carte Blanche April's Art Adventure where the theme is to alter a cigar box. I combined a variety of Prima products including pretty flowers, resin pieces, die cuts, crackle paste, acrylic paint and so much more!
Here's the before photo:
and here's the after altered photo:




For color inspiration, I joined along with April's Prima Product Pick:
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi Mona! You have such an unmistakable look to your art! It's always so beautifully done; shabby chic and gorgeous soft colors. Your altered cigar box is divine! I love your little corset medallion as your focal point. So sweet and feminine. The die cut oval behind it and the sweet flowers are such perfect compliments. I also adore your mixed media background. Just elegant. Thanks for sharing with all of us at Creative Carte Blanche.

Brilliant Mona, as your art ever is. I smile to myself to think of the cigar smokers and how surprised they would be at the transformation you've made. I especially like the composition here and the flow from lower left upward and to the right. Very gentle and pleasing. Thank you for sharing with Creative Carte Blanche!
