The Potting Shed

Hi everyone, today for my design team post at Craft Consortium I am excited to share an up-cycling project using wooden packaging that contained a sauce bottle from Christmas time.

I started by adding some brown paint to all the edges of my box and then measured sections of paper from our Wood Textures pad and cut to size. Onto all these sections I stamped on my flowers and foliage.

My watering can was stamped and fussy cut out adding my stamped caterpillar and a little glossy accents to it. My flowers and butterfly I added a decoupaged layer for extra dimension. My spade is cut from the Metal Textures Pad for the handle and the base part was cut from cereal box and coloured with a silver Promarker finishing off with some Distress Powder to look like soil.

My plant pots have been cut again from the Metal Textures Pad and using the Stamp Set from The Herbarium Collection I stamped onto coffee stirrers. I filled with fussy cut foliage from The Herbarium Pad adding my gardening tools and some 3D moss for modelling.

My table was made from the Wood Textures Pad adding some more Distress Powder for soil, die cut gloves and metal embellishments also from The Herbarium Collection.

The windows were die cut again from the Wood Textures Pad adding some Satin Miri card behind them. My cat was die cut using the metal textures pad adding a shadow layer of dark grey behind it.

My roof was cut into rectangles from the Metal Textures Pad, inked at the edges and added on the roof to look like quarry tiles.

Some more photos to look at.
