And now on to my Gina's/Paperclay mashup project... & CreativePaperclay Coffin Shrine - Nichola Battilana

I've taken a Coffin Box from Gina's and embellished it with paper from Tim Holtz Wallflower 12x12 Paper Stash. I've also added flowers from Petaloo and a bit of dried moss. Finally I've added some Feathery Flourishes which have been painted black and have just a bit of glitter added. & CreativePaperclay Coffin Shrine - Nichola Battilana

I painted the interior black and covered it in fine blue glitter. A bit of moss at the base provides a lawn for my Paperclay toadstools and a Tombstone Stand Up. For the text on the tombstone I've simply used a rubberstamp of script writing. You'll also notice some creepy trees in there. I've used one Chipboard Tree from Gina's and chopped it in half for this little scene. & CreativePaperclay Coffin Shrine - Nichola Battilana

The sentiment on the underside of the coffin lid "It was midnight and the moon shine through the attic window" is from an old vintage children's book. The filagree bits that frame the words were made by pressing Paperclay into this Silicone Mold. Wiping excess paint off of the Paperclay while it is still wet give a great distressed look. & CreativePaperclay Coffin Shrine - Nichola Battilana

And finally that little moony face. I sculpted him using a Creative Paperclay product called Delight. It is extremely soft, sort of like working with marshmallows, and even more lightweight than the original Paperclay. & CreativePaperclay Coffin Shrine - Nichola Battilana
