Mixed Media Box Featuring DecoArt Media!

Good morning friends, Kim here today with a fun and easy mixed media project featuring DecoArt!
I started off with a 5 x 5 paper mache box from my local dollar store.

I gave the box a coat of DecoArt Media gesso, and once that was dry added some white crackle paste from my stash to various areas of the box.

Once the crackle was dry, I got out some of my DecoArt Media Sprays, starting off with Turquoise!

I gave the box a gentle spray of the Turquoise and then spritzed it with some water to make the colour run. The DecoArt Media sprays are so highly pigmented that you only need a tiny spray to get maximum effect and colour on your project!

I also used the DecoArt Media spray in Fuschia as well and also spritzed it with water. When the sprays were dry I used a stencil from my stash and some DecoArt Media Texture Sand Paste. I love the sand paste you get so much texture with it and it spreads so easily, it makes such a great effect with stencils.

Now it was time to lay out my embellishments to see where I wanted them.

Once I laid out the embellies, I glued them down, and decided my little box needed a bit more colour. I used the Americana paint in Mulberry as it matched my colour tones perfectly! I watered down the paint a bit to make it spread and get in all the cracks.

A final touch is some watered down DecoArt Media Gesso, and I splattered it all over the box.


I added some vintage lace around the edge of the box for a finishing touch.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today and will check out all the DecoArt products!
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have found some inspiration here!
