Apothecary Book Box: For DecoArt

I am sharing the "outside" of an altered book box with you today. (the inside will be in a future post).

the step by step tutorial on techniques used to get the look are on the DecoArt mixed media blog HERE .

On here, I will simply share a few photos of the finished item. I have not done a tutorial for the "page effect" on the sides as, although it is not exactly the same as Candy's technique, it is close enough. so for a tutorial on that, have a look at Candy's post HERE (well worth a look as the project is beautiful).

So that is the outside. a tutorial for the effects on the inside will follow on the DecoArt mixed media blog very soon and then I can show you the inside in detail here. but here is a wee sneak peek at what to expect...

    And looking at all your past DT references on your right side bar (another wow haha!!) I see you have also been DT for Crafty Individuals in the past?...
