Mixed Media Altered Mailbox - Made With Love Design Team Project 8

Daolin Goh

Altering large objects always feels like a HUGE task but one really can afford to be more "minimalist". In short, let the white space speak!

For this project I really just let the contrast take precedence (lucky me working with a white mail box!) I did not get a chance to do a video tutorial for this one but it really is quite simple. 

Quick how-to:

1) Paint strategic areas with white gesso where the background will be made. Apply distress crayons of your choice onto those areas and really rub to spread out the color thinly only the surface. 
2) Take a stencil and layover the colored areas. Use a semi-wet baby wipe and rub off the designs exposed. 
3) Using die cuts (pine cone, tattered flowers from TH-Sizzix and the skeleton leaves from Prima), I made multiple focal points. Finally, embellish with buttons and paper cut out frames as if like a collage around the different focal points.
4) Don't overdo it, let the white space lay in contrast with the bright colors and let the focal point jump out to you!
