H2O box

A touch of mediums was enough to change an ordinary into art.
A wonderful creation from Pascale is waiting for you! Check this out.

Hello SweetiesToday I'm up on Mixed Media Place blog with a new project that I would say useful.
I don't know if you noticed but I'm addicted to the Twinkling H2Os. For those who don't kown them, they are watercolors with micas and minerals that give them a beautiful shine. I already  had a box in which I store my H2Os but it became too small ...  never mind I made a new one with a lot of space ...

As I told you, I wanted something useful as I take my H2Os with me everywhere : so I avoided volume and I chose to make something resistant.

Here is the first box which became too small, as you can see (meaning that I can't add new colors anymore).

After making the box, I covered it with two layers of Black Gesso. Then I added a design with a stencil and Graphite Paste. The Graphite Paste has a texture that looks like stone when dry: it's grany and shine with micas. When dry, I covered everything with Soft Matt Gel.

Then I dry brushed some blue-green shades of Silks (Bolivian Blue, Vintage Mint and African Jade). I continued with a diluted Autumn Leaf Silks that I applied liberaly and removed partly with a babywipe. 

And here is my finished box in which I can now store all my H2Os as well as some Primary Elements.
