Day 4 - Growing In Unity - Scrapper Myra

Happy Thursday to all. 

This is my fourth post as a Growing In Unity gal.  Remember to follow all my five posts this week and leave comments in all for a chance to win stamps from Unity Stamp Co. 

Today I will share with you a gift box I embellished. This is how the Box looked before I applied gesso and then using a stencil I created a design with modeling paste. I made sure the design didn't have conflicts with the space needed for the lid when closing the box. 


I spray painted very lightly first and then applied acrylic silver metallic paint to some spots to make them stand out. I later applied more paint until desired texture and color were achieved. 

I separately stamped the image and sentiment and applied some light color. The intention was to keep the image kind of vintage but combined with my shabby creation looks nice. I like it. Do you like it?  I hope so. 




I have to remind you.... Don't forget to comment below and in my Facebook page for an additional draw.  You'll find me as Scrapper Myra. 

Thanks!!!



A review of the GIU process and a surprise bonus:

Posts will be originated in my blog and you can visit everyday to read the post and comment.  You will want to comment  on all five posts because at the end of the week I will choose two random winners to receive 25 stamps from Unity.  

But there's more...  I will share the link in my Facebook page too.  If you like my page, and also follow the Facebook posts interacting with likes, comments and shares,  you will participate in another draw to win a kit from Unity (this one"s on me!).

Thank you again for your participation and support. 

Sneak Peek for tomorrow:

I am also sharing this creation and all this week with my friends at Craft Stamper magazine. There's an Anything Goes Challenge going on and am trying to participate as much as possible to collaborate with it.

This is so pretty! I haven't braved gesso yet, but looking at how this turned out I may need to give it a try. Beautiful work!

I like how you achieved such dimension. The colors are wonderful, too!!! The blue is beautiful.

Beautiful. The recipient will probably like the box better than what is inside of it😊

I just love the shabby chic look and all that gorgeous texture and color. I wouldn't have thought to use a stencil and modeling paste on the box but it makes all the difference. Thank you for an amazing collection of projects. You've used the Unity stamps in so many creative ways.

What's more original than this? Great job!

Karenladd said...

I have a couple of paper mache boxes that I've never decorated, and this is really inspiring me! Love the tip about leaving the top of the box flat so that the lid fits on. The stenciled texture is gorgeous and you used my favorite colors!

rebecca ramirez said...

I am Inspired!!! This is beautiful. I recently discovered embossing paste and have had so much fun with it.

Mary Kay Werry said...
