The Plain Box Society

I have been participating in lots of really fun collaborations this past year!  Today I am sharing another one StencilGirl® columnist Tina Walker pulled together.
For The Plain Box Society we all got the same plain box and were challenged to decorate it however we wanted, the only rule was any stencil used had to be StencilGirl®.  Easy peasy right?!!
This is what our box started out looking like.

No automatic alt text available.

I actually took my box apart so I could lay it flat to work on it.  

I started with the Layers of Scallops stencil (S575) and filled in with the ATC Mix Up stencil (L543).

I did all my stecniling with Dina Wakley paints; Peacock, Olive, Sedona and Cheddar.

Then all the doodling with Posca Paint Pens.

I accidentally smudged the paint pen while I was doodling and found that I liked the grunginess of it so I made sure to keep smudging while I continued to doodle.

I used the Tim Holtz foam alpha stamps to add some words areound the bottom of the box, stamped in archival ink.

I am really looking forward to giving a gift in this box, I will just have to wait for the perfect one to fit!

Please be sure to visit the StencilGirl® blog for more info on the collaboration and some other really great boxes by so many talented artists!!

Until next time...


  1. Posca paint pens are my favorite way to doodle. I love how the design came out on your box.
