I haven't had much chance to blog this month (or make comments - apologies to all!)as we are still having connection problems.
I have just had to grab my chances - this being one of them!
I've been loving the Autumn colours that are gradually appearing though!
I've been meaning to make some storage for my narrower stencils and when this box of hubby's was empty he was sensible enough to ask if I wanted it!! It's the perfect size!
I covered it with paper from an old gazetteer….
Then, having seen Anneke de Clerck tags on Paper Artsy last week I painted it with a mixture of Autumn Fire, Yellow Submarine and Orchid. I don't think I've quite got this technique yet so more practice needed!!!
From here I forgot to take photos so….as you can see I added some copper acrylic paint over the top, stamped text using Fresco Autumn Fire and then added flowers from Darcy's Eclectica EDY10 set and leaves from EDY09 stamped with Archival Ink
I coloured the flowers with some bronze acrylic and the flowers with Guacomole, dabbed off to show the text on the leaves. I'm still not sure that the box is finished but can't think what else I want to do with it yet!
I do however want to link this to the Paper Artsy Challenge
and to the Artistic Stamper where the theme is Autumn Colours
