Art Box – Mixed Media Craft

Art Box – Mixed Media Craft

Art Box

I really wanted an art box to store my finished art and craft items, like tags and cards; I used an MDF box to make my own art box.

Mixed media, is my latest passion and I am also a learner of this craft. I had an idea of making everything glossy,glittery and Shiny in my art box. The box must inspire me to create more, and I knew it must have the elements which I love, so the brush, butterfly, mirror, flower and of course gold touch 🙂

Materials Required

  • Heavy White Gesso
  • Black Gesso
  • Copper, Rust, Gold metallic paint
  • Chipboard embellishment
  • Charms/Pendants
  • Old brush
  • lace
  • MDF box (of course)
