Altered art for ARTastic


Today I have altered a tissue box into a pen holder for my scrap desk. I like this size tissue box as it fits neatly into my cup hold in my car. This is the first one I have used up and I decided I would like to repurpose it.

The challenge at ARTastic was to take inspiration from a beautiful painting by Van Gogh called Almond Blossom.


Isn't it pretty? Extra criteria was blue background, white flowers and brown or white title.
I've used Prima Annalee Collection Poetry PP as the background. It is blue and green with white flowers. I've also used some little white flowers in amongst the Prima crystal spray that I bought this week.

This is how the box looked originally.
Thanks for looking.
