Hello dear readers,
An altered box that has been painted and stencilled, that is my latest project. I would like to share some pictures of the altered box and then do a step- by -step tutorial on how I altered the box.
STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL OF ALTERED STENCILED BOX
I painted the drawer too with two layers of gesso first and then acrylic paint. Then I used a 12 inch by 12 inch stencil by Crafters Workshop and together with heavy gesso, stencilled over the surfaces of the box.
I wanted the stenciled design to be prominant and ‘pop’ a bit. So I realigned the stencil to shapes and used the gesso to add more texture to the piece.
I added some brown acrylic paint called sable brown from Claudine Helmuth to distress some of the spaces around the stenciled flowers. I am contemplating about varnishing the box eventually. Here is another look at my stenciled box. What do you think? Have a great week ahead.
