Leandra's video earlier this week on Paperartsy blog was about layering embellishments and colour that she'd learnt at a Finnibair workshop, I may have wimped out a bit, but I used metal embellishments, some buttons a wood and a card embellishment to liven up a tissue box I'd started (ok undercoated in cheap acrylic as a base and then got stuck) about 8 weeks ago.
I used Fresco Finish Chocolate Pudding and Cinnamon both diluted down to a thin wash then taken off with a wet baby wipe. I then applied Guacamole and Limelight with a wet baby wipe, then began layering the embellishments, some I swiped with Royal amethyst TG and the wooden butterfly I used Ranger Antiquities Verdi Gris embossing powder. As I have used some greens I would also like to add this to the Arty Inklings blog whose theme is Spring with some Green.
I am also entering this in Craft My Life - Anything goes
