"Hello everyone! Wow is this really my last week as a Guest Designer .... where has the weeks/months gone. Tonight I want to share with you a little altered project using one of the many Paper Substrates from PaperArtsy".
Let us begin. Take one pencil case.
I stencilled each cornflower separately and let it dry to get the layout I wanted plus added some random stencilling from the Mini Chicken Wire (reversed) Stencil.
I used the following Fresco Paints.
I painted the box inside and out with Nougat.
Then added very thin layer of Crackle Glaze randomly on the lid and once fully dry painted over the whole project with Bora Bora .
An alternative idea at this stage could be.
I then dry brushed the stencilled areas with South Pacific and Baltic Blue. As I’ve previously mentioned, with dry brushing – less is more. At first it doesn’t look as if anything is happening but if you keep gently brushing you will see the depth build.
Now perhaps you’re wondering what you could use it for? Your shrink plastic bracelet of course! Lol!!
Leandra Says: Oh such a cool gift box!! Love both decoration ideas for the top! Anyone would be thrilled to receive that ! Great idea!
Gillian Says: Aha so that's what you had planned for said SP bracelet! The transformation from a plain boring old pencil case into a beautiful bracelet case looks great Carol, love the texture detail from that particular stencil and of course the Grunge Paste. Fab!
