Art Creations Friday..Challenge 4

The image at Art Creations Friday is just what I needed.

I wanted a gift box to put Mum's christmas present in and couldn't find anything that I really liked.So I bought an unstained pine box.I lightly stained it with burnt umber, added the image from this weeks challenge. I used several layers of full gloss varnish then added the embellishments.I finished it off with another coat of varnish.It is really what I wanted.

TMTA..Seeing Red

The theme at Think Monday Think ATC is seeing red.

I just couldn't get away from Santa so here he is..

Soul Journal.. Textured Backgrounds.

The prompt for this journey was a double page textured background using LOTS of gesso.

I tinted my white gesso with Burnt Sienna and whacked it on the page embedding bits and pieces that I had laying around.Then I whacked more gesso over the top of that.I then embedded a picture that I liked which is of a fairy castle.When the gesso was dry I painted it over with twinkling H2O in warm pecan.Then I dry brushed with gold and bronze metallic paint.
When that was dry I cut the pages to follow the contour of the textured part.

I'm pretty happy with it at the moment but this could change..LOL.

Its much nicer in real life...In my opinion anyway.
