This month at Mixed Media World the theme is:
MASCULINE / FATHERS DAY
So this month I decided to do a little gift box for my son to give to his grandfather, you would not believe what it is going to hold... A whoopee cushion, of all things! Boys eh?!!! Gotta love 'em though!
Anyway here it is:
Considering it's content I was aiming for the skull and crossbones from Tim Holtz but they didn't turn up in time.
I made this using a box blank from Hobby Craft, layered in Art Basics Black Gesso, then embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder in patches to creates the raised gold areas. I use Art Basics Black Sand Texture Paste to create the 'sparkly area around the crown.
This was paint with DecoArt paints and then their Antiquing Cream was used to create additional depth to the piece.
I applied a glaze to the crown after all the painting so it had a slight gloss appearance. Then finally hitting the raised areas with Treasure Gold White Fire.
Come and stop by our challenge this month, we love having you!
Hope you're enjoying your weekend
