I covered a medium Vignette Box with scraps of Worn Wallpaper, over lapping some of the pieces to make them look like patches. I sealed the wallpaper with Collage Medium and after it dried I used crayon to grunge up the paper edges.
You can see here that I also papered the inside...well, hold your horses on that because I changed my mind later and ended up covering it up.
I decided I needed the inside to push forward so I cut a piece of black foam core and covered it with a totally different pattern of wallpaper than previously chosen. I repeated the step to seal with Collage Medium and let it dry. However, this time I scribbled the crayon onto my glass mat and picked up the color with a damp paint brush so I could paint it on rather than rubbing it over the surface. It gives it a lighter aging which is perfect for the Valentine.
I also tapped over the flowers with Collage Medium and then used the Glitter Duster to add Rock Candy Glitter over the flowers. I swear I will use any excuse to use that thing!
I painted a wood Vignette Frame in Antique Linen to match the opening of the medium Vignette Box. I rubbed it with Collage Medium and let it dry before adding the crayon to distress it.
My plan was to add the Baseboard Frame (at left) to the wood frame, which will cover up all of the inside details so I really didn't even need to paint that portion. One thing I did need to do was trim ever so slightly the Baseboard Frame so that is sits perfectly inside the wood frame. I used my rotary cutter to trim off a bit of the thick board.
1. You MUST use a spray box or a garbage can when you spray this stuff!
2. Wipe the nozzle immediately after spraying

You can also see here that I cut a very small red felt heart, attaching it to her hand with wire and hot glue.
now carry on.
