Altered Pencil Pots

I am constantly looking for the perfect handy containers for my art journaling supplies that I like to keep handy and not have to go looking for in a drawer or a cupboard.. so when I spotted these pencil pots from a local supermarket I just knew they would be ideal. I painted the boxes with Gesso & acrylic paint & then let the fun begin decorating the boxes..


Arty is the perfect girl for this project and she fitted onto the front of the box perfectly :)

Lying in bed.. made for the perfect sentiment for my other box.

The background was stamped with Twigs and also the Honeycomb background stamp. 

These pots were so much fun to alter and decorate.. details on my blog.Thank you for calling and leaving a comment if you get the chance. 

Have a great day. Happy crafting. Gez
