ATC Storage by Alison Hall


Hello crafters! Today I'm sharing the ATC storage box that I made for the recent Hochanda TV shows.

PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Acrylic Paint - Bora Bora, Brown Shed, Chalk, Little Black Dress
That's Crafty! Dinky Stencils - Numbers, Dragonfly Flight, Reverse Honeycomb Background

Here's what I did...

1. I decided to assemble my storage box before decorating, as I find this easier. But, you could quite easily decorate first. I used matte medium to glue the pieces together.

2. I painted the insides and base of the box with Bora Bora Fresco, and then the sides with Brown Shed.

3. Next, I painted the sides with a coat of Fresco Crackle Glaze. Once this was dry, I quickly painted a coat of Chalk Fresco over the top, then waited for those fabulous cracks to appear. 

4. I stenciled the dragonflies and numbers with Little Black Dress Fresco, then the Reverse Honeycomb with Bora Bora, to bring the interior colour to the outside.

So, quite simple, but some wonderful texture with the crackle and stenciling. These boxes are great for storing your favourite herbal tea bags too!

I hope I've inspired you today,
