Mix Media Photo Box

Hi all, Anika Mittal's always fun to work with TECS bases and crafting products. I always appreciate the awesome products of TECS. 

     Here is the tutorial of double window Photo box---

5---Bubblegum Chalk Paint
6---Purple Fields Chalk Paint
7---Black Chalk Paint
8---White Chalk Paint
9---Vintage Gold Chalk Paint
10---Tiny Butterflies Stencil

Before starting, I removed all the hinges and latching hook from the box. It helps to keep them clean and it also helps to stick the decoupage paper properly. You can easily put them back after decorating your front and back of the box. 

I prepared base coat of gesso on the surface of the box first. After drying the base coat, I applied black color as base in front of box. To add some texture, I rubbed the wax candle on the surface. Now I gave the strokes of different colors.

After the colors completely dried up, I rubbed that with sand paper. I have used TECS butterfly stencil with black embossing powder to give some designer look of our front of the box.

Then I placed mix media elements in one slot of my quilling box and paste them together.  Another side of slots, I placed lady pic and put acrylic glass back with fabric glue. Now to do decoupage, I taped the sides of the boxes. Taping the top and bottom parts together , helps to do decoupage properly. 

After finishing the front , its time to start working on inner beauty. I colored the sides of the inner part and then did decoupage inside the box. 

Now its time to give your project final touches.  Take out your distress inks,  your golden color and give some corner strokes to give your project a final look. 

Hope, you all liked my pictorial. If you have any queries or suggestions about the project, please let me know. Always happy to share what I know!!! 

Happy Crafting to all of you!!!
