Mechanical Fantasy altered giftbox – Aleksandra Mihelic – Mood Board Inspiration

Hello my dear crafty friends. It’s been some time since my last post. I’ve had some health issues to take care off and I missed my creative hours so so much in the meantime. I’m so happy today to be back with you again, sharing my fresh inspiration with you. This time I have for you a gorgeous altered box made with the amazing Dusty Attic chipies and some gorgeous mixed media goodies. As soon as I saw the eye-catching July Moodboard over at Dusty Attic blog, my mind wondered to gorgeous Stamperia paper pad, designed by an amazing artist Antonis Tzanidakis – Mechanical Fantasy. It fitted perfectly to the Moodboard. So I decided to create a rusty Mechanical Fantasy box, using the amazing Finnabair supplies, some Mitform castings metal embellishments bought at Mixed Media Place store and of course the fabulous Dusty Attic chipboards. I hope you’ll like my today’s project.

I first glued down some Dusty Attic chipboards to my box and colored everything with black gesso. I then dry-brushed it over slightly with white gesso. I colored the box with Lindy’s gang Buccaneer Bay Blue Moon Shadow Mist and a bit of a Tainted Love Teal Starburst Spray. I then started adding some highlights with three different Finnabair Texture fantasy pastes –  Cool gray from Old Walls set, Taupe Rose from Anemone and Coral set and Dusty from Camouflage set. I then added some cut outs from Stamperia Mechanical Fantasy paper set and some other embellishments, mainly of course Dusty Attic chipboards

Here are the Dusty Attic chipboards I used:

Thank you for taking time and stopping by. I hope I inspired you to play with your gorgeous Dusty Attic chipies and I hope to see some of your beautiful creations.

Enjoy your days.
Hugs, Aleksandra
