Butterfly Photo Box

Butterfly Box

I got this photo box at Michaels the other day 
and knew I wanted to make a special box for a friend.  
This month we are partnered with Pan Pastels.

PanPastel Colors are professional artists’ quality soft pastel colors packed 
in a unique pan format (cake-like). 
The special qualities of PanPastel Colors mean that artists can blend 
and apply dry color like fluid paint for the first time.

purple and green

Stickles, pearls, flowers, lace, pink seam binding, 

hair clip with lace pearls.

Paper is Recollections.

Mod Podge

Perfect Pearls Mist

Gesso and honeycomb stencil

I tore up the patterned paper and some cardstock
I crumpled the cardstock and sprayed with Perfect Pearl Mist.
Then I  crumpled it again.

I mod podged the patterned paper on the top of the
box. I used some of the cardstock also.

I added part of the butterfly on a wire stencil.

I decided I wanted to add some colour to the butterflies.
I added some green pan pastel. then some Stickles.

I added green pan pastels to the small butterflies and
purple to the large one.. 

Here is the butterfly with purple pan pastels then
stickles.. It was originally orange.

I painted the whole bottom of the box with gesso.
I then added the stencil and painted over it again.

I added the pearls and the flowers and lace flower on the lid.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
