Graphic 45 Altered Box

Hello Friends

It's Glen here with a great new project using the Best Glue Ever, Graphic 45, Tim Holtz tissue paper and other elements. I decided to use a limited color palette of Broken China and Spiced Marmalade to color the tissue paper after I applied it to the box.

Using my finger to even out glue.
First I used the No-Clog Writing Cap to apply the glue where I wanted it, then I spread out the glue with my fingers and applied the tissue paper carefully to avoid wrinkles.  I applied Distress Ink to the paper. I applied paper this way to the four panels on the outside.

 Then I used some Remnant Rubs to accent the tissue.  These are not the finished panels. I still have much work to do on this project and will post more pics when the project is done


I also used the Perfect Crafting Pouch  to take the sticky feeling away from the edges of the paper before applying the ink.  I haven't even touched the inside of this box yet, and at this point I'm not sure if I should stay with the tissue and the same colors, or if I will be adding papers to the inside and outside as well.

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to check out the Scraperfect website.
