Box of Spooks

Hi my name is Tracey and I'm so very excited to be offered a place on Faith Pocock's Design Team.

A little about myself, I live in Auckland NZ, married to my Bestie Pete and have 2 Teenage Boys Jack and Ben who keep me motivated in all the best ways, I work from home in our business as an office administrator and look after my Dad who @ 79 never stops amazing me with his knowledge and constant hunger to never stop learning.

I've been crafting on and off since my boys were babes and enjoy the creative outlet it gives me and the challenge to always think outside the box, I also enjoy gardening and recently adult colouring-in to zone out.

I hope to inspire you with my creative ideas and look forward to the coming months of creativity with you all.

Tracey :)

Today I have an altered book box to share with you as my first offering, this is one of the treasures I received as part of my first Design Team projects, it is Laser cut and has so many possibilities. Also, part of my kit was the many different metal embellishments Faith has in her store (amongst other gorgeous findings) which I used to decorate the lid in a spooky Halloween kind of way.

I thought being that we are in the month of Halloween it fitted in well, so I knew instantly that this would go perfectly to create the grungy styled book box to contain a journal of spooky spells.

I hope you enjoy viewing my first project.

I prepped the book box by applying a coat of Finnabair Art Basics heavy black Gesso over the entire area. I then set it aside to dry. Once dry, I then covered the top with muslin using Mod Podge. This was mainly to add texture to my base.
