It’s fun to plan a multimedia box, looking around the store for the box and then the embellishments. I was fortunate to have my son and his girlfriend with me while I shopped and they actually found this box for me! I knew that I had JUST THE PIECE of scrapbook paper that would pop against the light gray of the pre-painted box and I picked all my other embellishments with this in mind. Enhance the textures of your clay using a wash of acrylic paint across your favorite textured Premo clay color! I also made use of the flexibility of the baked clay to create thin “straps” that were wrapped across the curved top of the box.
