I made this recently, after having a cheap, bare wood tissue box holder for a few years.  I bought it from the dollar store with the intention of decorating it, but left it for awhile before getting to it after the new year.  I wanted something very different from the sakura set I made two years ago.


I went at it with some printed paper modpodged to the base, and then various layers of stenciled gel medium, layers of acrylic paints, die cut and painted gears, and then a bit more layers of paint to pick out some texture and detail.


More on my blog with more pics and details if anyone is interested.

I had a "D'oh" moment the other day too, when I showed Jim.  I had removed the tissues from the cardboard box in the years of using these wood boxes.  Jim just opened and popped the whole box in... it works so much better that way.  I never knew the entire box of tissues fit inside!  Way to make stupid extra work for myself!

YEah, I know.  Made me feel super intelligent!

Also, Jim was chuckling about how I made a "gear box".  I swear sometimes, he's 12.

Does it help to think that the gel medium is the consistency of snot?
