Hello everyone,

This is Monika here to share my first project for this term at The Academy Blog. I am so happy and proud to continue another year as DT with so many talented ladies at Academy. I am thankful to Elena and the whole academy for their love and support.

Here is my DT inspiration for our ongoing challenge. I have altered an ordinary cardboard tissue box into this beautiful piece.


First cover the whole box with tissue paper using DIY Mod Podge, create some textures with the tissue and dried it completely.

Add some large sea shells and different sizes of art stones using a strong adhesive.

Fill the spaces using some handmade flowers, clay elements (tiny star shaped), sisal fibre, glue dots and some more embellishments as you wish.

Once the composition is done, cover the whole project using Prima Marketing – White Gesso and dry it completely.

After drying add colours using Lindy’s Stamp Gang magical shakers to the project and use dry brushing technique once all colours dry.

For final finish use Finnabair wax – Brushed Iron to add some shine.

I hope you will love my project and feel inspired to create something and participate in our September AcademyScrapArt Challenge.

Much love to all..

Dr Monika Tripathi Shukla
