I am excited to show you how I transformed a plain wooden cigar box into a work of art.
Here is what you will need:
-Textured sheet called flourish
The Robin's Nest®
-English red oxide and Carbon black
- Carbon black
- Titanium white
Aleenes® tacky glue
Unfinished wood cigar box
Various sizes of paint brushes
|Trim cardstock to fit cigar box and use a corner punch to round the corners|
|Apply thin coat of matte medium to cigar box then add paper to cigar box|
|Glue the texture sheet on top|
|Cut texture sheet to fit box and paint black.|
|Paint on antiquing cream, when dry wipe off edges with a baby wipe.|
|Paint chipboard with media paint, let dry|
|Paint wooden charm, and wooden plaque. Glue charm and dew drops on wooden plaque.|
|Paint the cigar box edge turquoise. Attach the dew drops to the birds on key and then attach birds to the cigar box. Attach the dream wooden plaque.|
I just loved working with the products from Gina's Designs®. So many cool items in her store to choose from. The pieces really held up well when I added my mixed media products to them.
Thanks for stopping by!
I have been creating art for as long as I can remember. I studied graphic design in Portland,Oregon before moving to Denton, Texas and putting all my focus on mixed media art. In addition to being on The Robin's Nest Design Team, I am an article writer for mixed media art, on the Creative Paperclay Design team, and an Outside Artist and blogger for DecoArt. I strongly believe in giving back. I volunteer at Scrap Denton Creative Reuse Center where I teach workshops, art camps, and perform art demos. I am very passionate about mixed media art and helping others discover their creativity.
