ReUse and Recycling a box into a Pencil Caddy

Hey Guys!! Its been a minute since I have done a blog post but I am determined to do one or two a week starting….. NOW!  I have been upcycling-recycling and everything in between lately and this project is one that came out of necessity.

I have more pens. paint brushes, pencils etc… than one person should ever need and they are all over my art room. As I was cleaning up my art room I found a box that was screaming at me to reuse it and thats what I did!  

First I reinforced it with duct tape and folded the tops down to make sure it could hold my massive collection.

 

Then I used the DELICIOUS Folk Art Coastal Texture Paint in High Tide. It is a textured paint and I LOVE it! One coat and it went on glossy duct tape easily! I am going to add some dividers for some “organization”.

I am so happy with how it came out I will be doing another one for more of my supplies.

Check your local art and crafts store or the http://plaidonline.com and for 60.00 or more use the code MAY2017 to get 25% off AND FREE shipping!! I cant wait to use these paints again! I have so many ideas!

 

PLAID FRIDAY- INK JET TRANSFERS WITH MOD PODGE

HI Guys!! Another week gone and I have no idea where the days went! Thanksgiving is right around the corner for us in the USA and then holidays will be in full effect. I don’t know how I feel about that.

One thing is for sure I will be crafting my butt off the next few weeks. One of my favorite things to make is Grungy/Vintage looking things. If its old, beat up and marked up-Im all in! So this week I decided to show how to image transfer using an ink jet printer and Mod Podge.  You can really vary the tattered look depending on how much paper you remove and as you will see… I made a mistake-and I kept going with the attitude of I meant to do that!!

Below is the result of the transfer and the video I did showing how its done. I would love to know your thoughts on this procedure and if you try it PLEASE tag me because I would love to see it. If you are not already subscribed to my Youtube Channel – please subscribe- I put up new videos every Monday-Wednesday- and Friday.
