A bit of altered fun




Hope you are enjoying the lovely sunshine without the heat!  Working in a large greenhouse is no fun in the heat we have had recently. Thankfully it is much cooler. 

With the cooler weather  it was time to have some fun with my stash. It started with the empty cat food box. It was then covered in book pages and then painted with Imagination craft paints. The dies were then added to the front, sides, top and back of the box. Stamped some words and added them to the front and back. Also stamped a few words onto the box.  Finished with adding gilding wax to all the edges.
