Hello Everyone,
Today , I am sharing a project which was created partially created by my son and the rest by me. As I my son is in his school holidays so we went to local bunnings shop and bought a MDF frame.
I also bought some Acrylic colour pens from Life of color and I loved how smooth they are to work with.
So firstly my son did some zentangle on the frame with Life of colour Black pen and made some geometric design on it.
Then i went ahead and filled it with the some coloured life of colour pens .
Once finished off my painting I sealed it 2-3 layers with the Crystal Kote Gloss Varnish. to get a glossy finish.
Hope you like my project .
The products which I used from Helmar you can buy them on this website.
I really enjoyed this project making it with my son as his holiday project.

Here are my projects. Its was really a fun and a good way to challenge myself for this. Projects which I have created are show casing the new July release for Altenew.
Project 1: Luminary With Floral In "N" Out Border Die

  • Before moving on to cut the edge put your dies on the box area to die cut the images out.
  • Now cut the areas as shown in picture. Only till the 1 3/4 inch fold.
  • Once its ready put everything together with the help of glue or strong tape.
  • Your semi finished Luminary will look like the picture below.
  • Now making the lid and the legs.
  • For the lid I took a glitter card stock which measures 2 inches x 13 inches.
  • Now score the glitter cardstock at 1/2 inch on the long side.
  • Also score on the short side at 3 inch , 6 inch, 9 inch and 12 inch.
  • For making it look like legs I used the Altenew Tabbed dies to make the legs.
  • Assemble the legs just like the box was assembled and stick at the bottom of the box.
Bottom once put together will look like this

  • For the lid take a glitter card stock measuring 4 3/8 inch x 4 3/8 inch

Project 2: Fold Out Flat Box Card
Materials Needed:
  • Altenew Circled Greeting Die Thanks
  • Cardstock Measuring 5 1/2 inches x 8 1/2 inches (base cardstock)
  • Cardtsock 1 inch x 5 1/2"

Also score the 1 inch strip in half too.
The I glued all my pattern paper to my bases. I have got two red base , 1 flower side and one black for sentiment side.
Once I was happy with everything then I stamped my sentiments from the Stamp set Courageous You , the sentiment which I used is "You are great".
Now for the assembly of this. Take that 1 inch strip which was scored in half and stick on the one side of the base cardstock from inside ( this will look like a flap). apply some adhesive on the other 1/2inch and stick on the other side of the base card stock making it look like a box.
Now coming on the other side.
First I cut out my Thanks circle on a black cardstock then I took a circle die which is slightly bigger than your thanks circle and die cut that out. Once this was done I used the same circle die to cut my pattern paper circleout too.
Adhering that to the corner of your box. This was not that tricky. Here is how I did. I used those two smaller circle and scored each of them in half . See the picture below on how I stuck them on the base box. ( I used one of the button punches instead of circle dies)

Then on top of this I stuck my circle thanks. To finish of my card I used some of the clear heart embellishments.

  • Evening Grey (background)

Then fussy cut my out line to give a back backing on the cut out image.
On my base Kraft cardstock I then went and made a line slightly on the left of the middle of my card stock so that I can stamp some foliage on the other side of the card . For my foliage I have used the coral charm stamps.
