Cool Book Box

I signed up for a fun class by Andy Skinner called Book of Ruination. This is my first attempt at trying the techniques. A lot of the under layers did not show through my top layer.

I used Decoart Americana and traditions paints. The box was from Hobby Lobby. The die cut houses are Tim Holtz and I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder for the line and dot pattern. The texture technique on the box is from the class as well as achieving the rusty look on the die cut.

I used Tim Holtz tissue tape on the sides and stained it with Distress Stain.

Here are a few close ups of the rust technique.
