Deb McCormick here from Ohio on this beautiful day May 19 2014.
Good morning, I hope you all are doing well and expect to have a great day.
I didn't use many products for this project, I have found that sometimes less is more. Assembling the box was quite easy. After I did that I drew my doodle spaces with pencil so that I had individual places where I could do my doodling, when I was happy with my space, I went over the pencil with a typical pen used for Zentangle. I use the internet to find patterns/tangles to use in my projects. Here's where I started.
I doodle/tangled all but one side of the cube. I didn't really have to doodle/tangle the bottom of the the cube but I was on a roll....
Once I completed all of my doodling, I colored in the blank white spaces. I used colored markers such as Imagine Crafts Momentos for the coloring. Here's what we have so far....
Now for the top of the box, I usually sit around and doodle/tangle, I came up with a piece that I loved, and I wasn't sure what I was going to use it for until I started the box.
I cut the paper for the inside of the top flap about 2 and 7/8 inches. it didn't fit to the edge, I was afraid if I cut to fill the inside of the cube to the edge I would have trouble closing and opening the box.
For the last piece, I did cut the paper for the top of the ATB just shy of 3 inches it fit perfectly to the edge of the box.
here you can see how it fits to the edge the next picture shows how nicely the box closes.
I must say I had a great time working on this project, it was challenging as I had never doodled on an object other than a piece of paper. I found that it wasn't as complicated as I thought it would be.
I would like to thank Altered Pages for the chance to show my art. I hope you've enjoyed seeing the process of decorating my little memory box ATB from Eileen Hull. See the fabulous work by Eileen's Team at http://theartistsontheblock.com/
