I tore up tissue paper (any tissue paper used for gifting that does not have a waxy texture to it) into random sizes and shapes and crumpled each piece to give it a wrinkled texture. Then I adhered the pieces to the box using Matte Glue n Seal by Inkssentials (Mod Podge will work as well... matte Mod Podge is best), overlapping the pieces and keeping the wrinkles apparent. I also stuck random-sized pieces of printed tissue tape to add a little interest.
Once the box and lid were covered with tissue, I sprayed several different ink colors to the surface and allowed to dry. After, I dry-brushed an almost non-existent layer of white gesso to the entire surface with a very light hand. The point of this is not to cover the color we just added but to highlight the lovely wrinkles and creases.
I adorned the cover and sides with an array of different flowers by Prima and Green Tara.
Then I accented the flowers with Dusty Attic chipboard that I altered with paint, ink and embossing powder. You can see a list of the chipboard items I used in the product list below and they can be purchased HERE.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Until next time!
