I started to feel a little better today and as a result my Mum saw that I was getting a little stir crazy, after all what does a girl do when she can’t sing 🙂 I looked around my bedroom and found my old “Hannah Montana” storage box and I thought that I could give it a little make-over. We had some paint left over from decorating the lounge and Mum found some paper that we use for carding and we agreed that I should use “collage pauge” to transform the old box.
The technique involves tearing paper and coloured tissue into small irregular pieces and then glueing them onto the item to be decorated. You build up the layers of paper one piece at a time and watch it transform as you do it 🙂
I sanded down the box to roughen up the surface to allow the paint to stick to the surface a little easier.
I then built up the layers one piece at a time. This is the fun bit seeing the colours and patterns take shape and bring new life to something old.
Once I finished the sides and back I thought that I had better check the draws still fitted 🙂
I have some pink glitter paper left from my flat wall and I just might use them on the front of the draws, what do you think ?
