I've been feeling a bit fed up making cards recently so I've been playing about doing a few different things. I have a bad habit of buying MDF things and never doing anything with them , So........ I've been messing about and using up some stuff. Firstly I made up a clock kit that I bought last year but it still doesn't look quite finished so its waiting for a little bit more inspiration to happen. Then I found a money box I bought at least three years ago and for some reason I had painted it pink ! Here it is with its first coat of black acrylic paint
Then I covered it with papers from Tim Holtz French Industrial paper pad.
Found some chipboard letters and used them to put my OH initials on after covering them with Utee to try and make them look like metal ( not very convincing though !)
I knew what I wanted to do on the top so went into the garage and helped myself to some old pennies from the tin full that gets used as a doorstop, added some washers and a couple of little springs, the idea being to make it look as though he had emptied his pockets of the usual junk that gets left on the bedside drawers !
It still looked a little bare round the sides so found some black embossing paste( I've had it a while and its gone a bit jellified but still seems to work OK) and stencilled some numbers and roman numerals round and a few grunge lines on the front
couple more pics of the sides etc
If anyone has managed to stick to the end of this post LOL I'm entering it into
Countryview Challenges - which is Industrial , not sure if its appropriate as my "metal" isn't very convincing but I have really enjoyed making it !
