4×4 Friday – a box!

‘Florals’ are all the rage this week at 4×4 Friday… and I just happened to have prepped, a 4×4 ‘treasure’ box. I’ve painted the whole box with a coat of gesso, followed by a coat of green acrylic paint. I’ve used a scribble stamp on geen acetate and stuck that to the lid, after using the square scribble stamp round the sides of the lid. I’ve lined the box with some dark green handmade papers I’ve had for a while, added some hand-stamped blue tissue paper and set the froggy on the lily pad, in his very own pond/box!

All the stamping has been done using good old Stazon and I’ve used those gorgeous metallic rubons in gold and copper to add highlights to the edges of the box and the centres of each flower. The green daisy on top of the box was attached using glossy accents from Ranger.

I’m entering this for TGIF aswell, cos I used acetate on the lid, even if it IS green!! So there we have a “Box of Frog(s)” – ’tis a phrase we use quite often to describe someone who’s a bit scatty, scatterbrained…. ‘as mad as a box of frogs!’
