Mixed Media Altered Box

Mixed Media Altered Box
Hi friends, sharing a  box altered in mixed media style with some decoupaging and stencilling.
Sharing some of the steps:
Applied gesso on the box and gave it a coating of creamy white Folk Art paint
Gessoed Box
Then decoupaged a tissue paper on to it.
Decoupaged Box
Masked parts of a leaf stencil and used gold embossing paste to stencil a leafy flourish.
Gold Embossing Paste
Tip : Do not scrape off the excess embossing paste while the stencil is on your project but lift it off and then scrape off the excess paste  .
Stencil Technique
I just love the effect you get when the gold embossing paste dries...so rich and glamorous! In fact the white dots are acrylic paint splatters I added later to tone down the bright colors!

Stencilled another part of the leaf stencil on the lower part of the box and added a Cheery Lynn  glitter foam die cut  "Love"

The butterfly and time flies metal charms both got a rubbing with Inka Gold to glamorize them in golden hues.

 I painted over parts of the decoupaged napkin using watercolor brush pens and added a sprinkling of distress glitter too.
