Welcome back to my third and final creation for The Artistic Stamper. I have really enjoyed my time here and I want to thank Jennie first of all for asking me to be here and also for her kindness and support.
I decided that for my final feature here at The Artistic Stamper I would do a step-by-step...I love seeing these as it really gives a great insight into how someone works (in my case amid lots of mess!) I don't do as many as I would like because I get so involved in the creative process that I forget to take pictures, but this time I tried to be very aware of the camera as well! This is a very picture heavy post I am afraid - so grab a cuppa!
This started out as items destined for the bin (recycled!) but I decided to put them to far better use!
I turned it into this......
And here is how it was done....
First I prepared the tins and toilet roll by painting them top and bottom and inside with Nougat Fresco paint.
I then cut some card to fit around the items
So I got out the balsa wood and got to making a box.
and stuck them on to the edge of the tray with Glossy accents glue.
When dry I painted a couple of coats of the Nougat Fresco paint...
then I sanded them lightly to reveal hints of the metal underneath.
A metal drawer pull was attached to the front of the drawer.
Then began the 'putting it together'!
