Stenciled Mail Art - Tando Creative

Hi! I'm sharing some pretty packaging for the Anything Goes theme this week on the Tando Creative Design Blog. I finished up a special project for a friend and was packing up her gift when I was struck by the plainness of the boring brown box. I thought it would be fun to make the outside of the box as colorful as the present inside.

I wrapped the box with brown paper and then brushed on a light coat of gesso. I then spritzed the paper with Dylusions mist. I used the Giovanna Doily, Giovanna Hearts and Giovanna Spiral stencils to trace these gorgeous patterns onto the box.

Once the box was covered with patterns, I colored the designs in with a black Sharpie.

You can find the entire range of Giovanna's stencils in the New Releases section of the Tando Creative Retail Store. We'd love to have you join the Anything Goes Challenge! To be in with a chance of winning some great Tando goodies of your choice, please make a piece based on our weekly themes and link your project, not just your blog, using the inlinkz tool located at the top of the Tando Blog. You don't have to use any Tando product, but, if you do, you will be entered into the draw twice! There are no limits to how many times you enter, however, we do request that you only enter your piece for 5 challenges. We look forward to seeing your creations!

If you'd like to know what is inside the box, come back for a visit on Wednesday. Thanks for stopping by today!
