DAY# 2 OF THE 31 DAYS OF HALLOWE'EN Altered tissue box made by Silke Rieger

Welcome to DAY #2 of this month long blog hop.
The full blog roll is in the side bar and all the details of prizes, rules etc can be found HERE.
This month Silke Rieger is back as guestdesigner, because not all our designers like Halloween that much. 
Silke will treat us with 8 wonderful projects this month.
 It felt so good for her that she asked if she could come back as desiger.
 From now on you will see her work every other month, changing turns with Bea.
 In uneven months Bea, in even months Silke.
 Welcome back, Silke!

Deze maand is Silke Rieger terug als gastdesigner, omdat niet alle designers van Halloween houden. Ze trakteert ons op 8 mooie projecten deze maand. Het beviel haar zo goed dat ze vroeg of ze weer terug kon komen als designer. Van nu af aan zie je haar werk om de maand, ze wisselt van beurt met Bea. In de oneven maanden dus Bea, in de even maanden Silke. Welkom terug, Silke!


Use an empty tissue box and tear
a hole in the middle.

paint the box black, inside and outside,                              and use a stencil and modelling
                                                                                                     paste to make "bricks"

Colour the bricks with ink or paint                                        and glue a piece of brickpaper
                                                                                                                on the inside
                                                                                                         and a banner on the topside

Stamp a lot of Halloween images,cut them out and decorate the inside of the box with them.
Make a chest out of matchboxes, make some paperrolls, use your imagination!

Stamps and materials used:
P0808NS The birdman
EI S1464 The looking glass  (the Little skulls in the basket are that stamp too.)
CP Q525 Chat noir
TCW stencil Cubist (or bricks)

modelling paste
Distress paint
SX-TH658243 Graveyard
all other dies from Memory box.

Thank you for visiting today,
there will be another project from another designer tomorrow for DAY #3 of the 
31 days of Halloween.

Great use of a Kleenex box. Wonderful torn edges give you that grungie feel. Wonderful boxes, images, dies, and embellies. Total WoW and superb dimension.

Omg you make the brick work sound so easy to make! It's amazing!!! All the tiny details, the stamping and the cut-outs. I'll never look at a tissue box the same again :)
