Altered File for Artz de Scrap and New Challenge

Here's my take for the altered file challenge at Artz de Scrap. I happened to have a file box that desperately needed a makeover. So when Liza Yet of Artz de Scrap mentioned altered files, I just had to use the box!

I used 4 Inque Boutique papers, cut them into strips, then glued them to the box in a vertical fashion. Then I used the Maya Road Scrolls, placed them across the strips and sprayed Tsukineko Walnut Ink on and around the scrolls. The beauty of masking and spraying ink is that even if the background pps aren't exact matches, it won't really matter! In fact, it provides a little more interest when you realize that the papers are not exact matches.

I then glued Carolina's vintage lace horizontally across the papers and finished the box with the same sprayed MR scrolls at the sides. For added interest, I used Carolina's cloth flowers as accents on the scrolls.

Do check out what the other designers made at the Artz de Scrap blog. Then do join the challenge there to make your own altered file! Goodluck!

Materials: Inque Boutique Memoirs # 60514 patterned papers, Maya Road Scrolls, Carolina's vintage-looking lace, Carolina's cloth flowers, Tsukineko Walnut Ink.
