Today's challenge, #38 is - Anything Goes
Couldn't be easier could it? I made this memory box for a little girl I know and thought it may just be enough to enter. I started off with one of those brown papier mache boxes you can buy from hobby shops, mine came from Hobbycraft. Having tried Adirondak paint dabbers on it, I soon realised that the box was too big and I would need dozens of dabbers, so a trip to B&Q (several actually) saw me buying about 6 pots of tester paints! They worked a treat, and I have loads left.
I stamped the little girl image and coloured her with watercolour pencils. Then I added some patterned paper, gorgeous ribbon, Prima flowers, painted grunge letters and a little angel charm which is inscribed with 'made for an angel'.
The whole thing was a huge effort because it took me a week to make and cost a fortune in the end, but I think it was worth it. Hopefully it will hold many treasures and memories which, when looked at in years to come, make the owner happy.
