Altered Boxes

I had a friend visiting over the weekend and we managed to craft most of the weekend. We did a variety of projects, but today I'm going to share our altered boxes. Using a newsprint background, we did an embossed resist on the paper and then brayered ink. The boxes were then decoupaged with a satin finish. We didn't have time to do anything more with them. But I think I like mine, the small one, just as it is. It's not often that I get to craft with a friend and we just had a wonderful time. Do you have friends that you're able to craft with regularly?
