Stamp Storage Box

If you follow Darcy on her wonderful blog , you will have seen her fantastic idea's for recycling boxes to create more storage (lets face it, we all need storage).

So I needed some storage for the variety of acrylic stamps I have from various companies.
A friend of mine gave me some boxes that would normally be thrown away at the hospital where she works and they are the perfect size to fit A5 plastic wallets.

I started by covering the box in 2 coats of gesso.
Once dry, I used a mask with Tesco Every Day Value All Purpose Filler to create the lattice work.
Stupidly I did the sides then realised that I will be putting the boxes side by side so there's no real need to do this (so the next one won't have it).

Once it was all dry, I painted papermania 'linen' acrylic paint over and left it to dry.
Then, using a sponge, I used Tesco Go Create metallic paint in gold, copper & purple randomly over the front to give a 'weathered' effect.

Finally I used some copper Liquid leaf over the raised area and added 
the book-plate with a handwritten label 

Thank you for stopping by my blog today x
