Wanda inspired crayon box

Hello everyone. I loved Wanda's creations on Paper Artsy blog this month. Take a look here. Wanda took some ceramic tiles and transformed them. I didn't have a tile but did have a plain box with a canvass board that fits in the top. I wasn't sure whether alcohol inks would work on the canvass but needn't worried as thay worked beautifully.

I chose this stencil from JOFY

and used Marlin Fresco Paint from Paper Artsy 

once it was dry, I edged the flowers with a black Pitt Pen.

I chose similar colour for the sides of the box. Colours are Tikka and Dolly Mix fresco paints as well as Marlin.

I then coated it all in metallic glaze from Paper Artsy. Love how this turned out and the crayons look great in the box

Thank you for your visit and see you soon
