Fairy and Flourish

Fairy and Flourish
I painted this wood trinket box with gesso, then Twinkling H2os, then brushed on  silver Jaquard mica powder. I put texture paste onto a cardstock doily. I painted with more H2Os. I painted over gesso on the fairy and flourish, used H2Os,then a layer of crackle,then more paint to bring out cracks. Then another layer of crackle. I put the chippies on, then the the little border curls.The curls I painted with liquid pearls. Then I embellished with things. The thought of making something I could put stuff into was interesting to me,  rather than a layout that I put in a pile with the rest of them.
