the pencil box !


A good way to spend the day when one feels 'lazy' and
it's raining. Mixed media, gesso, moulding paste, stamps,
stencils, paints, brusho's and a bit of frantage, make a good result.

I found this pencil case in my stash recently so it is now
a pretty one for the nursing home fete fundraising.

Someone's going to be a lucky person to own this gorgeous box! Lovely colour combination. The stencilling and stamping adds so much texture and interest. Love the sentiment going around the edge of the box.
Chris and Lexi arrive in Australia on Saturday where it's supposed to be in the 20's compared to the humid high 40's they've been enduring, fingers crossed :D. Debra x

A great project. I love the beautiful colors.

Donna Ellis said...

oooooh, Annie! LOVING these amazing colors (please send your rain LOL we are dry, dry, dry the past 10 days, and it is fire season here, so rain is always welcome at this time of year).

I was trying to read the entire statement around the belly of your creation. It is VITAL to stop and REALLY look around, at details, at the small seemingly invisible things, at the expressions on people's faces...It's our"check with reality" I think.

Your texture-laden creation is amazing. How nice to have a special place and event to funnel your artwork to. I know the nursing home appreciates it greatly!

wishing you a lovely week-end,
hugs,
de

Oh, how I would have time to play as you have done, aNNie! :D But sadly I haven't time enought! :(
Great use of all your stash items!!! Fabulous design and textures here! This pencil case will be very appreciated, and surely you have enjoyed your playing!! Love so much the sweet colours with the sprinkle of brushos, the little flower and the stamps, and that sentiment around the box is fabulous, even if I can't read all of it!
Thanks for the inspiration!
