Recycled boxes.

Good evening fellow bloggers,
I've been a busy little bee in my craft room on a couple of afternoons this week. I managed to transform a cardboard box into this little beauty....

I painted the cardboard box, using yet again Rangers black gesso. I love this stuff. Added more of my favourites -g45 typography papers and a bit of Tim Holtz ideology. Quite happy with this and I just might pop it on my desk at work. 
I return back to work on Tuesday so still got a few days to make some more mess. Hope you all have a wonderful , happy and relaxed weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
Take care Elaine xxx
P.s Thanks to Wendy for giving me the boxes xx
