Christine Emberson

Keepsake Box

Hi everyone, Christine here today with a keepsake box. I’ve decorated this using  Art Medium.

CEmberson - Heart Box 1

Art medium is a liquid glue, sealer and varnish all in one and can be used on many surfaces.

I first of all applied it to a chipboard heart, positioned patterned paper and it affixed perfectly.

Once dry I used an emery board to sand the edges of the heart.

I applied another coat to act as a varnish.  I just used a regular paintbrush and it went on smoothly and effortlessly.

I selected a papier-mache box, applied white paint to the lid in a distressed fashion.

Once dry I attached the heart to the box lid with Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/2″.

CEmberson - Heart Box 7

Finishing touch, a die cut heard and flower affixed with 3D Foam Squares, White Small.  Tied twine around the lower section of the box.
