Mobile holder


Mobile holder
Hello crafty friends ! I have something other than card to share.
Mobile holder

A mobile holder ! Everything gone into making it is reused (except gesso n colors). Started with a cardboard packaging box.I had kept it aside for Lessology's previous challenge Cardboard Central, as I was traveling frequently last month could not create anything from it.I had a mobile holder in mind and kept this month's challenge ticktock while decorating it.Wondering how a holder relates with clock ? Well it holds mobile for charging TIME !! (hey thats the theme !!)

packaging cardboard
After cutting the box into holder shape ,tore upper layer to reveal corrugated texture at some places then coated it with 2 layers of gesso.Applied texture paste through a stencil (both home made) Then painted it with yellow and blue acrylic colors.
At this stage I had doodling in mind ,and did some on backside (to be safe ;) ). It looked ok but not good enough for the front .

Then came the brand tags.I cut a circle from the black one and painted lock face with white acrylic color . Did loose water coloring on other one and some writing with black gel pen.Layered a gauze piece,clock face,a broken button and fussy cut a shape from scrap paper to resemble clock hand n charge symbol both !

I cut the word energy from one of the tag and added small beads around it .Some hand written words to tie it with its purpose and Its good to use !

  7. You are SO creatively CLEVER, Miss Pooja! The shape is great - and the idea is fabulous! I especially like that you made the aperture large enough so that the charging phone can neatly be up near the outlet without presenting a fire hazard! Really great! the colors and design elements are so unique, too! Really fun and pretty! hugs, de
