Bags and Boxes is the  new challenge theme over at Try it on Tuesday.
 For some inspiration from our team pop over to the blog.
My take on the theme is an altered box I'm going to use as a Christmas gift box. 

It' s a very simple make over:


just glued some papers, added some decoration pieces and some splashing of white gesso here and there.

I am also linking my box to:

it's ornamental

Today I want to share with you an altered lid from a mason jar with 8 cm diameter. I turned it to a fridge magnet for my sister's kitchen.

I started with priming all with gesso, then covered the lid with texture paste through Tim Holz  stencil. I coloured all with Inka Gold paints: apricot and cooper and applied rust effect mixture from Stamperia.  
The gypsum angel was also coloured this way. 

To finish my fridge magnet I added some coloured and glittered chipboards, die cuts and plastic berries. 

I would like to enter my piece to the following challenges:

holly jolly

There is a lot of sadness surrounding me nowadays.
But there are also better moments when I am walking down my  memory lane and thinking of good times in my life. 
I can remember my childhood when I was waiting for Christmas Eve to come.
There were also some very old, beautiful tree ornaments which belonged to my Great Grandmother.
I was inspired by them when I altered this craft envelope.
I transferred the images from the napkins onto the tags with gesso. 
Stenciled some texture paste, added  some stamping, heat embossed some snowflakes. There was also some inking and misting used. 
I am going to use the envelope as a package for a book I bought for a Christmas present. 

I would like to join the following challenges:
stampsandstencils: remember-remember
thatscraftychallenges: tag your'e it
thatcraftplace: kraft
brownsugarchallenge: no patterned paper

Sad Angel

Today I want to share with you my next angel made with brown Powertex textile hardener.
I didn't take any pictures during creating as the process is very, very messy. 
I used old cotton textil pieces along with bandage and tulle to make the dress and wings. The wood parts are also found at my store room. 

After drying the figurine was painted with old gold acrylic paint.
I am linking this to lessology: dress-form

I have created a scene in my art journal using collaging, stamping and painting.
