The Box Has Been Started!

Well, I've started collaging the box that I told you about a couple of weeks ago. Here's the process: I hand-painted tissue paper, and now am tearing it and collaging it to the box with clear gel medium (I covered the box with clear gesso first and let it dry)

I'm using the same colors that I used in the banners -- each color represents a month, a disciple and a power of man -- these colors are used a lot in our services. I still will be adding reds, oranges, russet, gold and yellows. Then, I'll be adding words that represent our Capital Fund Campaign - "Youth" - "Education" - and "Seniors" that I have stamped on silver painted paper.

It really looks beautiful in my mind! Hope it translates to the box!
