This is a G45 Staples Book box that I've covered using the Home Sweet Home collection. I seldom work with mixed medias when I'm working with G45 papers as I can't bear to cover the gorgeous images and patterns but today I thought I'd try my hand at it and I actually like the result. I used a couple of masks and white modeling paste as well as acrylic paints. After all that was dry I painted the entire box inside and out with matte medium to protect the paper as I do plan to use this box to hold my G45 metal embellishments.
The large G45 button is, of course, the centerpiece of my embellishments! I fussy cut some flowers and added 3D flowers as well. When I add fussy cut elements to something like this that is going to be subjected to wear and tear, I coat the pieces with something like Glossy Accents to give the paper strength. There is a G45 Ornate Metal Label Holder peeking out at the bottom from underneath the red flower.
Inside the box I sprayed some white linen Dylusions in keeping with the shabby messed up look.
This is another G45 button box that I made last year. This one is a G45 Staples shadow box and has 3 different G45 buttons in it. It's just a fun piece of decor for my scrap room.
The predominant paper that I used for this was Couture but there are bits and piceces of Curtain Call, Typography, A Proper Gentleman, and Ladies Diary.
Thank you for visiting me today, I appreciate it so much!!
