For Chloe~

Hi Girls,

Thought I would just share with you the two projects made for my son's Girlfriend Chloe. She is leaving for University Tomorrow and Matthew (my Son) and I have made her a pressy each to take with her.

This is the box before I Altered it:



And this is it after!








This little box is filled with goodies, Sweets, Shower Gel, Note Book, Socks and a key ring. I made the box using one of Paper mania's bare boxes. I have covered it in K&co paper, Tim's tissue paper and sprayed it with my new Spray Sprinky's Aegean Sea inks. The little flower is chipboard and is covered in Adirondack Acrylic Paint in Pool, the top then has Crushed Glass beads on and then covered in Glossy Accents as are the K&co letters.

Matthew's present is a Canvas that he uses in his Art at College.
He has taken a photograph from his recent Holiday with Chloe in Tunisia and has copied it several times on the printer and then cut out individual layers in order to Spray Paint each layer. So each of the colours you see is a separate layer that he sprays and lets dry...(I just love watching him do this, it is so time consuming, but he just gets a craft knife and off he goes, then on goes his mask and the spraying is next!)



This is the original photograph:


Isn't the finished result Stunning? I absolutely love it, no wonder he does so well at Art in College, he is so dedicated to it.
