JUST LOVING THAT PINK
This is the box file I altered for the Big Art Adventure - its an old foolscap file which was very tatty. I didn't bother with any preparation I just set to and painted it with acrylic, and then added a sealant coat of matte Mod Podge. Because the box is quite big, particularly lengthways, I couldn't get my scrapbook paper to go out to the edges without piecing, but I think the panels work pretty well. The paper is a sparkly one from the K & Co Smitten range.
I painted the grungeboard hinges, key and file tab with black metallic acrylic, and added a keyhole from my stash. You have to admit that the result is a thing of beauty and a joy forever even if I say so myself!! I've got another one somewhere which may well get similar treatment.
