I've got an inordinate amount of old boxes in my craft closet because "you never know when you might be able to re-use that box."
This footed Halloween box started life as a cigar box. I used a lot of black gesso, long-time hoarded Graphic 45 papers, and a crazy amount of metal pieces from Bead Landing, Tim Holtz, Art-C, Prima and so many other places I can't even recall.
I was glad to finally get my hands painty and inky and waxy, do a little fussy cutting, and out-of-the-box mixed media crafting to try something unusual for myself (I'm normally a card maker). YAY for jumping out of my comfort zone!
