This is a second makeover of this cardboard box.
The first one was damaged during my moving.
I glued some kind of mesh to the whole background and  also stenciled some gesso. 
The frame was made from cardboard.
There were  some crumpled paper pieces mixed up with texture paste added. 
To finish off my project I made a composition of flowers, chipboard and pieces of gauze. 
I have coloured the whole piece with gelatos, Dylusion ink sprays and silver metal gloss paint. The text stamp was used too.

I am joining the following challenges:

Dare to Fly

Today it is time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday
 Little things mean a lot is our new theme.

Make something that measures no more than 4 inches (10.16cms) square,
it doesn't have to be square, but would have to fit into the square shape.
It would be a good idea to show a ruler measuring the piece in the photo. 

                                           Pop this on your blog to find us fast!

My take on the theme is an altered cardboard  box. 
I put some lettering ,,dare to fly'' there and don't know why it is so blurry ( only in the picture). ☺

Found Objects

The current topic at Paper Artsy blog is FOUND OBJECTS and I would like to join in with the object I recently found in an old book. 
Believe it or not-  it is over 20 years old dried flower I got from my deceased husband.
I used to dry the flowers he gave me. 
Lots of wonderful and touching memories.

I started preparing the background with my latest faves- ecolines.

Then I used white texture past with the stencil.

I stamped a frame around my piece and attached the flower with mat heavy gel medium.

Then it was time for another found object- the back of the old calendar.

I painted it with Dylusions melted chocolate paint, stamped with Archival Ink and rubbed some Inka Gold copper metal paint.

I finish off my piece adding some crackle glaze on the edges, a metal heart and a chipboard word- memories.
Hope you like it!

I liked the challenge theme over at tag tuesday.
It is Heritage . 
I treat the subject very wide- made the tag showing a polish engineer  Tadeusz Wenda.
Thanks to him my hometown Gdynia transformed from a village and seaside resort to a lively town with most modern harbour in 1920s. 
As a background I used a reprint the original engineer's permit.

The Face

Today I want to share with you my piece called the Face.
I have recently played with Ecolines - liquid water colours, while creating the background. What a fun it was!
I also added some stenciling and stamping along with gluing some pieces of rice paper. To finish off I added some wooden stars, hot embossed earlier. 
They symbolize tears: so shiny and precious.
You can see few of my steps below:

for Maya

My granddaughter Maya loves little ponies. It's a pity because in the contrary I think they are very ugly. I wanted to make a gift for her showing another kind of pony.
And you know what? She loved it!
In my shadow box I used the metal shape of a horsie my older son cut for me.
It was covered with texture paste through the stencil. 

I started with a piece of paper , various sprays and a brayer. 

Then I added some stamping to the background  and framed the picture.

To finish off I added a horsie and some metal elements

A Quote

I'm on time today☺! And it's high time to start our new challenge over at Try it on Tuesday
This time our theme is Add a Quote. I hope you will join us with your beautiful pieces.

                                            Pop this on your blog to find us fast!

I have altered one of my favourite things to make awesome- a crafty gift bag. 
I started with stamping some text stamp to make a frame. 
Then I added some die cuts- I made them from an old box so it is another thing recycled.
I finished my project with stenciling some embossing paste, hot embossed later.
I love the quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson and hope you will like it too.
