Lights, Camera, Action

Morning all.
Welcome back to another Creative Team Blog Post.
For my next project as part of the creative Team I decided to have a play with one of Andy's Stencils and applying to a home décor piece in this case a Tissue Box Holder. Looks much nicer than a plain old tissue box don't you think.
I started  by taking the measurements of the tissue box and cut out my panels and box top using Tando Creative Greyboard sheets.


 Once cut I then applied DecoArt Media Crackle Paste through Andy's Old Film Stencil and let dry.( let Crackle Paste dry naturally or the paste will not crackle )

Once the crackle paste had dried I assembled the box with strong glue and gave the whole box a coat of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in Silver.
Once dry I applied washes of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics in Prussian Blue Hue and Transparent Yellow Oxide. Building up the layers until I was satisfied with the depth of colour . Lovely Greenish hues. Once dry I placed the stencil back over the design and used a stencil brush to apply DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in Gold. When dry I applied a coat of DecoArt Media Antiquing Cream in black all over the box and wiped back with a baby wipe. This highlighted all the lovely crackle.


Finally to finish a coat of DecoArt Media Matte Varnish was applied to seal and protect. I can now display my tissues in a more pleasing manner. I love constructing from grey board it's wonderful stuff and I do hope you will give it a go as it's not that really difficult to do.
Thanks for stopping by and I do hope you have enjoyed this tutorial. Until the next time.
