It's All About Him at TioT

 Hello, and thanks for popping in today as we see the start of a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday, the theme this fortnight is 'It's All About Him' and considering that Fathers Day will soon be with us, it could be a great opportunity to get organised.
I've  altered a box and given it a masculine look.  I  used Embossing paste with a script stencil on the sides and top and added my embellishments before priming it with Gesso.  I used PaperArtsy Fresco Finish in Taupe and French Roast to paint, removing some of it with a baby wipe I highlighted the edges and embellishments with Treasure gold.

 It wasn't a particularly strong box, so I made a 'liner' from corrugated card for strength, and covered this with some papers,
The rest of the DT have some great inspiration, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details

Have a great day,
Avril xx
