LESSology challenge 7 ~ You've Got Mail

I am sharing today, my DT project for LESSology



I don't know about you, but I got most of my scrapping supplies online, that ends up with lots of this...


now this is how I turn my shipping box into gift box....


I used Gesso to cover up all the "unwanted" text on the box...


next, water colors.....


remember that old book I altered that got me all these book pages? now they are green grass...


green grass, blue sky, white clouds.... now let your imagination take flight....




now this box just need a gift to get in there, and ready to be shipped again....



you might want to hop over to LESSology now to see what the talented team created for you, here's a sneak of their project...


and guess what, Pixie Dust Paperie is sponsoring LESSology challenge # 7


Hop over to play along won't you?

I absolutely love this idea, Kirsty! Never would have thought of it. You are brilliant to paint over an old box. LOVE the grass you created and the beautiful scenes. Especially love the birds on the line!
