Positive vibes Hop-A secret book Box



Hi friends I am Apexa,

Welcome to positive blog hop. The purpose of our blog hop is to start the new year on a colourful & creative note, spread positivity & Good vibes. We hope you will enjoy the mix media projects and pictorial we all have prepared......

"STOP SAYING I WISH..... START SAYING I WILL"
yes.....With this quote I m starting my journey of the year 2019. With  " THE POSITIVE VIBES BLOG HOP" WE would like to spread positivity everywhere and to make everyone smile!!!!

"ALWAYS FIND TIME FOR THE THINGS IN LIFE THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY"

This is the title of my project which is a secret book box. I truly believe this quote in my real life too. If you are happy from within, you can make happy everyone around you in your life. So try to make yourself happy first. Spend atleast some time everyday for the things which you like the most!!!!

I named my project as  vintage secret book box because it's a box created in the form of a vintage book and inside the box, I created a secret place where  we can put something and a window view.

I created the box from chipboard and waste empty tissue roll. As my friends know me very well now that I prefer  to create any project totally from the base

Here is a small video to understand this project!!! And than I will be explaining with step by step pictorial πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–
1.Firstly I created a shadow box from top with the help of chipboard and empty tissue roll, I covered it with crumpled tissues by sticking with diluted glue
2. I create some ornamental design with stencil and crackle paste
3. I create book page effects by applying prima art basics modelling paste to three  sides of the box and gave some liner texture and Covered it with a coat of prima art basics gesso
4.put few uniforms dots on the edges
 4.inside I stuck an MDF window and created bricks effects on the background with the help of 3d outliner. I applied watery acrylic paints and wiped extra to give this look of bricks.
 5. I gave a vintage look on box spine with some chippies from Itsy Bitsy and embossed paper stripes

Also sticked some embossed papers on the empty small container box created from the empty tissue roll.
 6. Created the hinges from some die cuts all layered together to make it sturdy. Gave texture by dabbling with the fingers.
7. Started painting with Indian red and terquiesh blue acrylic paints on the box and brown and white on the sides
 8. Prepared some levels and flowers to put on the window part By using classic rose fine collection from heartfelt creations
9. Also created a fence to put below the window. Fill that with some artificial grass and some wooden waste from backside covered it with a black cardstock 
10.Fussy cut the lady figure and the can part and pasted to the places as shown
11.finally I stuck the heading of my book and gave finishing by fixing those hinges to the box!!!!


Hope you enjoy the complete process of making this project.
