Mixed Media Art Prompt Box 2

Hi everyone, in a previous post I shared with you my first Art Prompt Box. Well today I want to share with you my 2nd Art Prompt Box. This box is quite different from the first one, which is what I wanted. I was in the mood for something that was airy and light with a touch of vintage shabby chic.

I had lots of fun creating this and now I'm ready to start challenging myself to create some projects  using the prompts. As I get new products, I need to remember to add them to my list. Hope you've been inspired and are having fun creating your own prompt boxes... supplies listed below! :)


Supplies used...
Wooden box and misc. metals, chipboard and old paintbrushes etc.
Gesso, Modeling paste for stencils and Crackle paste for the drawer.
Prima Shabby Chic door locks.
Tim Holtz Alpha Parts, Ornate plates and Black Soot Ink.
Crafter's workshop stencils: "Mini Moving Vines" and "Mini art Is".
Prima and Petaloo Flowers.
Heartfelt Creations "Everyday Heroes" paper collection for box sides and drawer.
Sprays: Glimmer Mist "Patina and Dylusions "Calypso Teal" watered down.

I added several layers between gesso and sprays, lastly using a round, but flat bottom sponge brush with gesso for some texture. To finish, I used the black soot ink  for shadowing.

Have fun... be creative!!!
