There wasn't much play time in the art room (art-ing!) this week but I did play around a little with an inspiration from the very talented Diane over at My Art Journal. She makes some really gorgeous collage cigar boxes.
I think a fair amount of what was called "tramp art" was once made using wooden cigar boxes. I have a few around that I store things in so I decided to spruce one up. Mine is pretty simple stuff since I only took a couple hours to work on it but it put a dozen ideas in my head.
I just glued on some scrapbook paper, did a little rubber stamping, added a few highlights with a white pen and finished it off with a coat of Mod Podge. Also learned you can't put Mod Podge over the top of white Signo ink. In case you were wondering.
I use this one to store some of the pens I shared with you in this post.
This was a lot of fun. Thank you Diane!
