Something Altered!

It's time again for another fun challenge over at Scrapalicious Usa.  You should check it out and join in.  It's going to be a lot of fun.  Just make something that isn't a card or a scrapbook page.  Something that you alter creatively to make it something else and fun.  Here is my story:  I was at a garage sale and found 3 small chipboard boxes in graduated sizes.  Someone had taken craft paints and turned them all folksy and tole painted.  I didn't really like what they had done with looked like one of my old craft projects from the 90's gone awry...but I had to buy them because I knew eventually I would think of something.  So is what I did with one of them.

Remember back in December when I shared the ornament I made over using an old book I bought at the Good Will?  The Complete Works of Shakespeare?  If you want to read about it, you can look over here.  Anyway, today Julius Caesar has made his debut on my round box.  Using the same technique of tearing the pages into small pieces of paper and applying them in layers to the box I covered it.  Then I added a lot of different Tim Holtz distress inks and Bo Bunny stickers and chipboard stickers to embellish.  I also added a pretty little dragonfly and bee to the top...just because.  Pretty easy, I made it in one short evening.  And now I have fun little trinket box.  Come and join us in the challenge!!  There will be a gift certificate to Scrapalicious USA given away!!

I love seeing craft makeovers like this. I need to do some yard-sale'ing this year, what a great find!
