Day of the Dead is one of my favorite themes to create! The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. Since losing several family members it has a special place in my heart now. SABOR has wonderful papers to use for the celebrations.
I entered this in Things Altered - Anything Dark Challenge on Facebook HERE!!
Today I have an altered cigar box to honor family I have lost!
Theses are the papers that inspired my project!
First find a cigar box that the images would fit in.
SABOR-El Novia Cardstock
SABOR-El Novio Cardstock
Fabric Flower for Sabor
Silk Floral Leaves
Apply Gel Medium to fussy cut images, let dry.
Paint cigar box with Black Gesso, let dry.
Measure the cigar box front and &back, from remaining SABOR-El Novia Cardstock and El Novio Cardstock cut a piece of cardstock leaving a 1/4 inch border. Apply with Gel Medium, let dry.
Measure outside lower sides of the cigar box, cut pieces from SABOR- Ramitos leaving a 1/4 inch border, apply with Gel Medium, let dry.
Measure inside sides of the box, cut 3 pieces from SABOR- Ramitos the exact size of the sides, apply with Gel Medium to the sides and top, let dry.
Adhere a sentiment from SABOR-Sentimetios Amor to the inside front (above) and another to the front (below) of the box with Gel Medium, let dry.
Layer fussy cut images inside the box using Dimensional Adhesive to add space between the layers.
Embellish with Flowers, Silk Floral Leaves, Skulls and Dew Drops!
The finished box!!!
