Good morning lovelies, sunshine again here so I may brave the cold and tidy the garden this morning but before I venture out, I'd better tell you about our new challenge over at PanPastel UK. Our theme this week is 'Alter it' and as always our lucky winner will receive a fab prize of a PanPastel starter set from our generous sponsor Berni from Your Creativity Store.
I've altered a plain little wooden box, I began with a layer of watered down Maimeri Gesso and once that was dry i added colour with Ultramarine Blue tint PanPastel and a little Raw Umber PanPastel. Next I applied Maimeri Iridescent paste through a Crafters Workshop Template, I love this stuff its so shimmery and gorgeous! Once that was dry went over with Graph'It markers using the chisel tip to add some colour. The focal image is a gorgeous stamp from the Stamp Man, I've coloured her with PanPastels and Graph'It markers and cut out before attaching to the lid of the box with Maimeri Matte gel medium.
Next i stamped some flowers from the same stamp set on the box with versamark and applied Ultramarine Blue PanPastel over the top. I whizzed a brown Graph'it Marker around the edges of the box and around the image, softening the colour with the blender pen. To finish off iv'e added a couple of glittered acetate butterflies and a little flower (made with air dry clay and coloured with PanPastel to act as a little knob to open the box. I've sealed the finished project with Maimeri Matte Gel medium. Here's another pic of the finished project:
