Hi Wendy,
Yep- I am drooling over that collection! Love your project! Thanks for the tip on the paint. I have been meaning to go get some but didnt know which to use. I did a project with white spray paint recently thinking it would be better and I think I need to stick to acrylics ( it was a nightmare- I am too impatient and ended up with bubbles, cracks and drips- not good).

Deb Routledge

wow, that is an amazing idea! love how you used the papers!

Lynn Wigren

Love this project and how adaptable to whatever type of "box" you have! Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Wendy! Not a scrapper here, I found your site while searching for using acrylic paints & alcohol blending solution (yep, that's how I got here) actually, I'm a jewelry designer. Anyhow, I just had to comment from one crafter to another (I do love painting wood tho) YOUR PROJECT is FABULOUS!! It makes me want to run out and buy the same box and go to town making my own!! Anyhow, you're very talented and just wanted to say, thanks for the eye candy!


This is such a cool idea - I know what to do with my fragments now! ;)

Shelley Haganman
