I love punching little projects like this.
I have stash of paper mache boxes,
and this was a perfect way to use up a couple.
Whimsical, and bright; yet toned down to be primitive.
The designs were dipped in a walnut bath...
The boxes were sponged with a walnut paint.
This punch needle design was mounted to
a rusty heart, also in my supply stash.
I love embellishing with seed beads to add texture and interest,
and the jingle bell and sari ribbon just tops it off perfectly.
This heart was also dipped in a walnut bath.
I have to say I prefer the time worn aged look.
I listed these items in my ETSY SHOP today.
Slowly, I will be adding more things to the shop in the days to come.
Have a great day!
