Last year when I went to visit my very good friend Deb in Florida, she took me to Orlando, Universal Studies. We had an amazing couple of days visiting Harry Potter themed parks as we are both big Harry Potter fans. This box and mini album were made for Deb as a keepsake of our memories of those amazing days. – explains the idea behind her project Linda Simpson.
Linda used the following materials for her project:
7gypsies Mixed Media American Vintage
7gypsies Gypsy Pack Vintage Travel (no longer available but you can use a variety of tags and embellishments instead)
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Gold and Tattered Leather
Newton and Winsor Gesso
Prima – Mechanics Embellishment
Prima – Camera
Daler Rowney Burnt Umber and Buff Titanium Acrylic Paint
Golden Heavy Duty Gel Medium
Folk Art Plaid Crackle Medium
- Give the box a coat of burnt umber; once dry, add a coat of Crackle Medium by Plaid. Once this is dry, add a coat of buff titanium acrylic paint. Put to one side to dry.
- Make the mini album using Kraft card and decorate with photographs.
- To decorate the inside of the box, I used a piece of cork to line the lid and felt to line the base.
