Stenciled Mailbox

Hello. It’s Lauren on the blog today sharing this sweet mailbox using the new Mailbox die set by Lori Whitlock and also Lynda Kanase’s Japanese Kumiko stencil. I love using stencils to create my own patterned papers and I think this one is perfect for the mailbox.

I started out by securing the stencil to a white cardstock panel. I then ink blended Salvaged Patina over the stencil. Then, leaving the stencil in place, I spritzed Clear shimmer over the stencil. I let the shimmer spray dry then splattered gold metallic watercolor on using a paint brush. I waited for the paint to dry again then carefully removed the stencil.

I then die cut the pieces needed to create the mailbox using the Mailbox die set.

Once all the pieces were cut, I assembled the mailbox.

Once the mailbox was complete, I created the elements to decorate it with using the dies included in the Mailbox die set.

I used Distress Oxide sprays to spray some of the elements.

I ink blended the flag with Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink. I die cut the heart, a bird and the word mail from yellow cardstock. Then I splattered the heart, the word mail and also the bird wing with gold metallic watercolor paint.

I adhered my elements to my mailbox. For the flag, I used a brad from my stash. I love how this little mailbox turned out. It would make a great spring decoration or Easter treat box.
