Altered Box Tutorial

Good afternoon all.

We've had some lovely weather this week...a little chilly at times but lots of sunshine. The house has suddenly moved on, thank goodness and is starting to look like a home. Decorating is all but finished, kitchen needs the granite on the island and there are three carpets to lay....the end is nigh!!!

My turn to share a tutorial over at ARTplorations today. I've done another altered box...Mark presented me with an empty one when he was clearing out his room pending our move and instead of adding it to my ever growing pile of stuff "ripe to alter" I set to straight away. I hope you like what you see and please pop over to the blog to see how I transformed it.


  1. You did a super job Carol. I popped over to see what you did. The texture paste looks fantastic on the box lid. A really lovely piece. Barbxx

    I'm glad the end is in sight with your house, I bet you can't wait for it to be finished.
    Have a lovely weekend.

  4. Glad you are feeling more settled and at home in your new house and that the end is in sight. A gorgeous box, love the texture and details.
