Its time for another challenge over at Divas
& this time its an Anything Goes theme, so lots of scope to create & I look forward to seeing the entries.
I have 2 close friends & 1 of them was going to New Zealand for Christmas & New Year, so we had an early Xmas lunch last week & I gave both of them a tissue box I had made for them. I didn't want it to be just a Christmas gift but something for all year round, so I decided to make each side a different season
Here is the Winter scene. A Magnolia Tilda & lamp, coloured with Promarkers & snowflakes covered with Pinflair Snow Dust. paper from Papermania Noel set. Magnolia die used to create the lacy effect at the top & the season created in Word. Every edge is distressed with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
The next one is Spring, again with a Magnolia Tilda with Apples. Flowers from stash,as is the paper,the image coloured with Promarkers, everything the same as before.
Then we have summer, a Magnolia Tilda & Surfboard, coloured again with Promarkers. Paper from stash. The sun I made by cutting out a circle & some elongated diamond shapes. Palm trees from a set that I found buried in a drawer that I have had for years by Impex Creative Crafts.
Lastly we have autumn, Magnolia Tilda & leaves. Paper from stash & everything else the same as before.
Finally the top where I wound raffia around the top of the side of the box & added the flowers as seen from stash. The leaves are a punch, no idea of make as unmarked.
These were a labour of love as it took me 2 evenings to colour the images, then another 2 evenings to create & decorate, but they were very well received, so well worth it for 2 of my closest friends.
