Looking for a mid-level mixed-media project? You are in luck! Tanya has a gorgeous trinket box for you today!
"I created this mixed-media Trinket Box with lots of metal and moulded embellishments, melange and some chipboard leaves and decorative box feet. I painted the box and all of my embellishments individually with some black gesso first (I prefer to do it this way thus making sure everything is completely covered). I then placed the embellishments on the box and played around with them until I was happy with my composition. I glued them with heavy body gel, I love this gel!! I gave my little box another coat of gesso. I randomly added some more texture with a mixture of texture powder and black gesso. Using the dry brush technique I covered the box with my favourite Sparks Paint Butterfly Spells, the shimmer in these paints are gorgeous! I then randomly dry brushed over the pink with White Gesso and continued the process between the Sparks paint and white gesso until I was happy with the result.I then highlighted some of the elements with metallique wax in vintage gold."- Tanya
