Welcome everyone, my name is Lyn and this is my first post as a designer for Colourarte! So happy to be here!
First off I started with recycling a box from of all things "granola bars"...First I covered the entire box with brown paper, then I started to add texture with some stencils and some paper packing material from my stash using a matte medium.
Once dry I began adding some resin pieces also from my stash, some sand texture paste and some micro beads again using matte medium.
Now this is where the fun happens...
I painted the whole thing with black gesso. Then once dry and using only 2 colors of Vivid Ultra Metallics, Peaceful Poppy and Mandarin Blush I brushed on 2 coats in random areas to cover the entire piece.
I finished it all off with some white acrylic paint, dry brushed on here and there to complete the look.
