The collection incorporates heaps of outdoorsy themes such as hunting, fishing, camping but also has a good collection of general nature related prints too.
|I will be showing all the projects on this shelf (including the shelf itself!) in the upcoming weeks. There are a couple of mini-albums, magnets and several types of journal.
For the pages I have simply cut cardstock from dollar store pads to size and stamped on them with images from the Hunt and Gather stamp set. I rolled some through a paper crimper to give a bit of added texture.
I also used the beetle stamp to decorate the front of the box. I used Stayzon ink to ensure it dried fast on top of the mod-podge.
In case you are wondering how the box started out – it was a Kaisercraft Beyond the Project. They are made from MDF and come flat packed. You just decorate and glue together.
I painted the box with two coats of dark brown paint and then attempted a crackle finish which failed miserably! I then just dry brushed over the failed cream finish with a bit more brown and some black acrylic paint before individually sealing each piece with glossy mod-podge.
Normally I wouldn’t do this but I wanted a shiny finish to make it look like old oak.
