My Stacked Box Project

CS Box for February 2015 1 watermarked Let me be honest, when we were first assigned the task of making this
“stacked box” project for the Club Scrap Artist Team February Challenge, I was none too thrilled.  Ahhhhh.  Not being a girl that can easily walk away from a challenge, I knew something good would come of it.  However, it happened at that last minute.  For weeks, I considered what I’d do but the pressure of deadlines is a dear friend and she showed up on time, as usual.  I knew that for me it could not simply be a paper project.  I needed to incorporate my art and some painting.  Light bulb: “I will paint a face.”  A little nervous but not afraid. Paint and paper are very forgiving! You can cover it up, if you must.  LOL!

Anyway, I began by covering the spines first and then I painted the covers.  Once the boxes were pretty much complete, I stacked them neatly and sketched out my face.  Once the sketch was complete, I was able to start painting each part of the face separately.  My love grew as I continued to paint.  “Yes, this is really happening!”  I snapped a photo of the nearly completed project and shared it with my hubby later that evening.  He looked and simply said, “Wow!”

Going from an idea in my head to a project that I LOVE was quite a wonderful experience.  The idea in my head does not always appear in real life the same as imagined.  LOL!
