Hi everyone, Toni here with a fun new project for ReneaBouquets. These are the brand new Explosion Box/Ornaments that are now available in the store.
My Christmas theme this year is Farmhouse Rustic and so I wanted to dress this little box up like a woodsy diorama to sit on my table.
The horse was painted first with silver paint pounced on for texture and then embossed with silver EP for a fun metal effect.
I wanted the corrugated metal look on the sides so I achieved this using Metallics Kraft Paper, give it a light sand and distressing it with Black Soot Reinker.
The ReneaBouquet Explosion Box and decorative snowflakes were all painted with a simple coat of white gesso and then Gathered Twigs DI was used on the edges .
The top of the box was decorated with Sizzix Poinsettia and Festive Greens diecuts. And to finish to off a light coat of DIY snow was applied everywhere along with Rock Candy glitter.
Hope you enjoyed. For your pleasure I have included a process video below for your viewing.
