My dear friends & readers, back in December I
thought I would take a small pause (couple of days) to get ready for the
festivities and somehow it turned out to be a longer pause than I expected
hehe!!. But anyway we are back on track
with all the excitement to share new projects & new images in our both
blogs Boulevard de L'antique: Crafts & Decor and Retro Scrap Freebies.
Have you heard the say: “one man's trash is another
man's treasure?” Well, it's true! I
found two boxes in our building's junk disposal area. Yes! Two beautiful game boxes were there
waiting to be rescued and I could not believe how somebody would throw them
away. The boxes were in perfect
condition and still contained some small game pieces that I have kept as
trinkets for future projects. Today I
want to show you how I decorated one of the boxes inspired by a Retro Road
Trip, here it is the outcome:
With a little bit of paint, different images related
to theme (highway restaurants, bars, signs, etc) and few stamps I was able to
create a nice keepsake box for any road trip souvenir collection, but of course
in retro style.
In this project we used the standard “decoupage” step
by step you can find HERE.
