I had the blue metallic paint out to decorate the cheese box in the previous post - and yes, you know what's it's like - you want to paint everything in sight don't you!
So after a rummage in my stash, I retrieved a wooden tissue box which I had been saving for the day that I had some inspiration!
I painted it blue all over and it looked lovely, but plain.
Then I got out my stencils again and stencilled every flat surface!
And both sides of the top!
With a lovely pearlescent (childrens) tube of acrylic paint, which I brushed over the blue to give it a gorgeous sheen when the light caught it!
Sadly it doesn't photograph well but you will have to take my word for it.
I didn't want to part with it really as it looked lovely in real life!
It has gone to a very good home though - to Haruko, my daughter in law, as one of her Christmas presents.
