Good morning and a very happy Sunday to you. We're supposed to be having lovely weather this weekend but I don't know what went wrong yesterday, no sunshine and freezing cold but at least it didn't rain I suppose. Its time for our new challenge at Premium Craft Brands PanPastel challenge and this week its all about texture! As always there is a fab prize of Premium Craft brands goodies for our lucky winner and lots of gorgeous inspiration from my lovely teamies so if you've got a minute do pop over and check out the challenge blog.
For my DT project I've altered a little book box and had loads of messy fun lol. I began by painting the box with black gesso. While that was drying I took some kraft card and smothered it with Maimeri Iridescent paste coloured with gold and copper PanPastels. I added texture with a palette knife and then spritzed a honeycomb rubber stamp from Indigo Blu with water and stamped in to the paste.
I left it to dry and then added more paste through a Pronty Stencil to create the roses. Once that was dry I went over the textured card here and there with Graph'It markers in greens and turquoise and spritzed with Mix'It fluid
I cut the card to size and used it to cover the box. Now for some more texture, and I'm really chuffed with the way this turned out :-)
I've always wanted to create the look of pages on these little boxed but never really worked out how to do it, anyway inspiration struck and I took some Maimeri Light Modelling Paste and spread it round the edges of the box with a palette knife and then went around the edge with a Texture Tool. Again once it was dry I painted with black gesso and then ran a versmark inkpad over the sides and highlighted with metallic PanPastels. To finish off I've added a laser cut butterfly from Dutch Doobadoo, embossed with WOW verdigris EP
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Basteltraum: gifts and boxes
Delicious doodles: anything but a card
Frilly and Funkie: stencils and texture
Inky chicks: monochromatic
Thanks so much for visiting, have a good day
