After our vacation in Ocean City, Maryland, I picked up a clearance blank frame and a damaged jewelry box. I think the frame was maybe $2.99 and the box was .66. I decided to use some of the shells we bought in Delaware to decorate the boxes. After all, I have tons of scrapbook pages that no one ever sees.
|Unfinished wood frame and the damaged box. If you look closely at the box, there are two broken wooden parts that are jutting out.|
|I painted both using Tim Holtz Distress inks. I think crackled the frame using his paint.|
|Painted box with Tim Holt distress inks and some cheap acrylic paint in whites and blues. Glued beach glass and shells over those weird jutting wood chunks. Put Tim Holtz's tissue tape in music on front. Used Liquitex Ultra Matte Gel to cover all.|
|The inside of the box. I glued in some beach glass, cloud paper, and a copy of the Mythic Tarot Ace of Cups.|
|No finished but I am trying to keep things simple. There is a clear blue circular tile that says beach.|
