Welcome Back GD: Kate Yetter Project #1 Altered Frame Box

"Hello all, Kate here with my finale week of projects as a Guest Designer. Lets start tonight with a frame box from my stash which was just crying out to be transformed".

Here is a pic of all the supplies I used.

I added a drop of the Fresco Finish Paints to an acrylic stamping block, added a squirt of water and painted my stamped images.

After painting my images from EDY07  and EM05 I cut them out and inked the edges.

I covered my frame box in a coat of gesso before applying Grunge Paste through a flourish stencil.

Fresco Finish Pumpkin Soup was used to paint over the entire box.

I stamped the entire box in a random pattern.

I wanted some more white so I added more gesso to the box with a palette knife.

I used my finger and a palette knife to add Fresco FinishCaramel in various places.

Here comes my favorite part, drippy paint! I added various ink sprays and dripped them down the box until I reached the look that I wanted. Depending on the spray, I used a spray bottle with water to dilute the color and allow it to drip better.

And here is the final box after I added my stamped embellishments.

I hope you can join me again tomorrow night for project #2.
