this is a blank board shadow box that i collaged and painted, then stashed xmas goodies inside for my mother.
first i spritzed it inside and out with a combination of burgundy and gold spraywash paints. once it was dry, i collaged the lid with 3 colors of torn mulberry tissue and painted strips of lutradur, sealed with matte gel medium. i love how the mulberry tissue colors just melt and blend together with the medium.
i added a domino i painted with alcohol inks to the lid as an embellishment, and lined the sides with a black paint marker. inside i added bits of mandala transfers.
