Art Journal Every Day. 2

Today my time was spent brayering over the page on the left hand side

Splattering the page on the right hand side with water to which I added a drip of bleach.
I like the effect!

Haven't a clue where I go from here!
Will let you see when I have done some more!

Altered Plywood Tissue Box

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!
Both ends
Both sides

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.
