Simon Says Stamp and Show is asking for your favorite technique. I love to alter objects. Giving things a new appointment. Mostly it's upcycling, because i really like to use things your normally throw away.

For this challenge i'm using a simple packaging, everybody knows i think. A little bit paint in this case, simple paper cutting and glue.

If you don't need to watch your line......comfort food (:o)

I used the empty lid on the left and some matchboxes

Figure out your own little configurations box.....

..and embellish....

I painted all the boxes with  light pink acrylic paint to match the Almanac paperline from Prima. My favorite paper at the moment (:o)
I'm collecting a lot of  empty boxes. As in this never no...when you need it......and for what.... (:o) Sure not trash.

Happy Monday (:o)

Candy C hat gesagt… is so crazy how you can just "see" things out of other things! You are the queen of repurposing. This candy box looks fabulous; how you have completely transformed it into such a pretty little "configuration box". Love the color and all of your elements! Beautiful job! Thanks for sharing your art with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

Mir fallen hier gleich die Augen aus dem Kopf. Die Idee ist megagenial und die Umsetzung sowieso. Muss ich mir unbedingt merken.
