Lets get Messy at TioT's

Lets get Messy,
 is the new challenge theme at Try it on Tuesdays.
What a good excuse to have some fun.
Please pop over to see what the girls have all been making and come and join us.

 I started off with good intentions to take photos of the stages, but they flew out the window
Top row
 shows the first layers of white  and acrylic paints then smears of crackle medium.

Bottom row
The inside, plain white to start and some stamps and a few stencils  I added the gold gilding wax as I wasn't sure if I would add another stamped image.

The inside I would keep flat, to make closing easier

Time to think about the outside.
When closed, the width is  about 3 inches and the height  just over 4 inches.

This is the inside, after the gilding wax and extra colour was added.

Out side coloured, gilded and the die cuts added.

Thank you calling in to see what I have been making, you are very welcome here.

I am also going to link with  the challenges
 at Mixed Media World
where the theme is .....
Anything Mixed Media Goes

 where the theme is 
Texture, crackle and paint.
