Pretty boring papers, but I am concentrating on the white backsides here:
So I quickly grabbed some old craft paint, a gift/key card and a handful of texture sheets
Then, placing the plastic canvas under the paper squirted paint onto paper and swiped paint with the gift card, then slid some of the texture plates underneath again and did it some more until I was satisfied with the look. Paint dries very quickly because it is so thin. One distinct advantage to this method is it is quick and easy with very little cleanup. I do have gelli plates and love to work with them, but it is a little more work and with more things to clean up, brayer, stencils, masks,, etc. This method gives great results in a very short time. Since my work table was near a window, the two sheets I did dried in minutes.
Then using the You Tube video linked above proceeded to make two boxes:
Here is another couple of shots showing the side view thickness of the boxes:
I almost had looked at ordering plain white 12 x 12 cardstock to paint like this, then to use in my Cameo, or as envelopes, didn't realize I could just repurpose the pack of that cheap scrapbook paper to do the same thing. This is a very inexpensive and quick way to get nice background lightweight cardstock which can be embellished further, I could also run through my wide format printer and print on top of the painted side, see some of my previous experiments doing this with my painted gelli papers here.
One tip I learned making the boxes is not to score to hard on this cheap scrapbook paper, a gentle scoring works better,
